THERMAL STUDIES OF PLANETARY SURFACES

  • David Morrison (a1)

Abstract

Ground-based and spacecraft observations of planets, satellites, and asteroids in the thermal infrared have provided a wealth of information on planetary temperatures, dimensions, and surface properties. Internal heat sources have been revealed for Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune, and active volcanism on Io has been discovered and monitored. The thermophysical properties of Mars have been mapped for nearly all the surface by spacecraft, and ground-based observations have given similar information for the Galilean satellites of Jupiter. Infrared radiometry thus sheds important light on significant problems of dynamics, interiors, and surfaces of solar system bodies.
