Martian Year 34 Climatology of the Atmospheric Column Dust Optical Depth

Luca Montabone, Ehouarn Millour, François Forget, Aymeric Spiga , David Kass & Armin Kleinböhl
We provide a climatology of airborne dust for Martian year 34 using observations of the Martian atmosphere from May 2016 to March 2018 made by the Mars Climate Sounder (MCS) aboard Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). Our methodology works by gridding the available estimates of column dust optical depth (CDOD) from MCS limb observations. The resulting (irregularly) gridded maps were validated with independent observations of CDOD by the Mars Color Imager camera aboard MRO, and by...

Widespread Shallow Water Ice on Mars at High and Mid Latitudes

Sylvain Piqueux, Jennifer Buz, Christopher S. Edwards, Joshua L. Bandfield, Armin Kleinböhl, David M. Kass & Paul O. Hayne
The auxiliary information associated with "Widespread Shallow Water Ice on Mars at High and Mid Latitudes" by Piqueux et al. consists of a set of 2 maps (d_m.ascii and TI_SI.ascii) and 2 coordinate files (Lon.ascii and Lat.ascii). - d_m.ascii (720 x 360): Depth to the top of the water ice table, in meter - TI_SI.ascii (720 x 360): Upper (dry) regolith thermal inertia, in J m^2 K-1 s^-1/2 These maps are projected on a simple...
