The climatology of water ice aerosols in the Martian atmosphere as retrieved by MRO/CRISM
Dr. Khayat et al. used hyperspectral observations returned from the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) to provide retrievals of the column-integrated optical depth of water ice aerosols for more than 5 Martian years between Mars Year (MY) 28 at Ls = 112° (September 27, 2006) and MY 33 at Ls = 213° (August 30, 2016). The data here are presented in Figures 7 and 8 of the manuscript "The Mars Atmosphere Water Ice Aerosol Climatology by MRO/CRISM: 5 Mars Years of Observations " by Alain SJ. Khayat, Michael D. Smith, Michael J. Wolff , Scott D. Guzewich, Emily L. Mason, and Samuel Atwood, submitted to the Journal of Geophysical Research-Planets. The file "CRISM_tau_ice_climatology.dat“ is a table of the CRISM climatology of water ice aerosols in the Martian atmosphere. It includes the following information: West longitude, latitude, season (Ls), and the water ice aerosol optical depth around 3300 nm.
