This site from Arizona State University presents information about the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) that was originally developed for use on the Mars Observer spacecraft. The TES is both an instrument and a technique that measures the thermal infrared energy (heat) emitted from Mars. Using this technique, scientists may be able to determine much about the geology and atmosphere of Mars by examining the spectral responses of specific minerals and gases. This site includes information about thermal infrared energy as well as understandable explanations of both the spectrometer itself and the spectroscopy technique.
