The Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) mission to Mars landed on a Hesperian to Early Amazonian age, regolith-covered, basaltic lava plain, dubbed Smooth Terrain, in western Elysium Planitia. The lander rests within a ~27-m-diameter, degraded impact crater called Homestead hollow. Understanding the local stratigraphy has implications for shallow seismic velocity measurements from the mission’s Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure instrument (SEIS), thermal conductivity and soil porosity estimates from the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3), and thermal inertia and conductivity measurements from the onboard Radiometer (RAD).
