Abstract

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft arrived at the asteroid 4 Vesta on July 16, 2011, and is now collecting imaging, spectroscopic, and elemental abundance data during its one-year orbital mission. As part of the geological analysis of the surface, a series of 15 quadrangle maps are being produced based on Framing Camera images along with Visible & Infrared Spectrometer data obtained during the High-Altitude Mapping Orbit (HAMO) and Low Altitude Mapping Orbit (LAMO). This poster presentation concentrates on our geologic analysis and mapping of quadrangle Av-6 located between -22 and 22 degrees latitude and 144 and 216 degrees East longitude (Fig.1).
