Analysis of MGS TES Data over Acidalia Planitia and Cydonia Mensae: Compositional Evidence for Hydrovolcanic Activity?For this study, Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) emissivity data for Acidalia Planitia and Cydonia Mensae (Figure 1) were assembled and used to examine the surface mineralogy of these areas. Analyzing TES data for high latitude locales such as Acidalia presents a challenge since the surface temperatures over these regions is inherently lower than for equatorial locales. In this report, analyses of TES data are described and results are evaluated for potential compositional evidence for hydrovolcanic activity in Acidalia and Cydonia.
