This study may explain why carbonates, which are expected to be present on Mars, have not been detected using the Mars Global Surveyor Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES). In addition, we study data fusion, path-length, viewing geometry, proximity, and reflected downwelling radiance effects for solid phase targets measured from vehicle/rover, airborne, and satellite perspectives.
