  1. Hello, I am currently trying to find examples of the surface temperature on Mars, as taken by the Climate Sounder on the MRO, for the 3rd of August 2015. However, I'm very new at working with this data set and it is proving tricky. Firstly, there are a range of columns which mention "temp" in their title, however no amount of internet searching will tell me which one relates to actual ambient temperatures. Secondly, there should be some mention of Channels (aka Channel A. being measurements closest to the ground) but there isn't, so I'm not sure how to work out which data entries are from the surface. Thirdly, of all the temperature-related columns, none of them have data which varies by more than 1 degree throughout the 24 hour period, which suggests that they are actually referring to instrument temperatures rather than planetary temperatures. All in all, it is proving a tad difficult. The dataset was downloaded from Mars Orbita Datal Explorer. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. A huge thank you in advance, Emily
