Abstract

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft entered orbit of Ceres on March 6, 2015, to spend one year characterizing the geology, elemental and mineralogical composition, topography, shape, and internal structure of the Ceres [1]. Ceres is supposed to be differentiated into a silicate core, a liquid water mantle and a solid ice crust with a surface temperature from 130K to 235K [2,3]. At the time of writing, the acquired image data from Ceres provide a spatial resolution of up to 2.1 km/pixel. The surface of Ceres reveals some albedo features that seem to be related to geomorphology. Those features show either a high or a low albedo compared to the surrounding.
