Validation at Gusev - comparison to THEMIS thermal inertia map of Fergason et. al (2006).

THEMIS thermal inertia of the Gusev landing site region.  THEMIS-derived thermal inertia image overlaid onto a THEMIS visible image of the traverse from Columbia Memorial Station (CMS) to Bonneville crater to the Columbia Hills at the Gusev landing site region.  Numbers indicate site positions along the traverse.  Site position along the Gusev traverse was typically incremented after each drive segment and was chosen because site is more representative of the distance traveled than sol numbers.  (Figure 13, Fergason, et al, 2006).

Calibrated HRSC roughness levels.
