Dark Material On Vesta: Synthesis And Interpretations From Dawn Observations

McCord, T. B. and Combe, J. P. and Jaumann, R. and Palomba, E. and Reddy, V. and Blewett, D. and McSween, H.Y. and Raymond, C.A. and Williams, D.A. and Dawn, Science Team (2012) Dark Material On Vesta: Synthesis And Interpretations From Dawn Observations. 43rd LPSC 2012, 19.-23. März 2012, The Woodlands, Texas, USA.



Unusual deposits of “Dark Material” (DM) on Vesta’s surface were recently discovered by the Dawn Mission [1,2]. A focused study of these deposits is underway within the Dawn team and the three preceeding presentations in this session [3,4,5] treat different aspects (geological, morphological and compositional) of the Dawn observations analysis. This report is a synthesis of these findings, presents some further analysis and interprets them in terms of origin( s) and processes.
