  1. Gene,

    The detector temperature requirement for IR delivery to the PDS is < -145.45C.

    243D0_07 is higher than that limit.

    MRO:DETECTOR_TEMPERATURE       = -143.586

    I will contact you by email to discuss this matter further.


  2. Shyam,

    The definition for emission angle in ODE is correct. The image where the craters look circular has the same value for scaled pixel width and height. The other image has a scaled pixel width that is twice that of the pixel height making the craters look elliptical. You can verify this by following the link in ODE to the team site and viewing the metadata there (see attached images). This metadata is also provided in the index table of the PDS archive.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions.

  3. Field photographs of Amboy Crater, CA have been restored.

    This bundle contains a digitization of photographs taken in February 1976 by Drs. Ronald Greeley and James Iversen during field research at Amboy Crater in the Mojave Desert of southeastern California. The photographs are currently housed at the Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies (RGCPS), at the Arizona State University (ASU) Regional Planetary Information Facility (RPIF). The data were provided by David Williams (ASU) and archived by the PDS Geosciences Node.

  4. A new batch of Earth-based Venus radar data has been released on the PDS Geosciences Node web site at http://pds-geoscienc...radar/index.htm. This release contains data collected from August 10 - August 16, 2015 and March 21 - March 27, 2017.

    This data set contains Earth-based, polarimetric radar image data for Venus collected from 1988 onwards, using the Arecibo Observatory 12.6-cm (2380 MHz) transmitter in Puerto Rico and receivers at either the Arecibo Observatory or the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia. The data were provided by Bruce Campbell of  the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Earth and Planetary Studies and archived by the PDS Geosciences Node.
