Description:

This article from the Image Visualization and Infrared Spectroscopy Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh examines how thermal infrared data (TIR) from the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) is used to study impact craters. Knowledge of the constraints of the instruments' spatial and spectral resolution is required for an accurate interpretation of the surface composition of Mars. Data obtained from the Earth-orbiting Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer's exploration of the Meteor Crater in Arizona provides a proxy for interpreting data from THEMIS due to the similar spatial and spectral resolution of the two instruments.
