Geologic mapping of the AV-6 (Gegania) quadrangle of asteroid 4 Vesta

Le Corre, L. and Reddy, Vishnu and Nathues, A. and Williams, D.A. and Garry, W. Brent and Yingst, R. Aileen and Jaumann, R. and Roatsch, Thomas and Preusker, Frank and Pieters, C. and Russell, C.T. and Raymond, C.A. (2012) Geologic mapping of the AV-6 (Gegania) quadrangle of asteroid 4 Vesta. Lunar and Planetary Science Conference 2012, 2012-03-19 - 2012-03-23, The Woodlands, Texas, USA.



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).
