Abstract

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft entered orbit of the inner main belt asteroid 4 Vesta on July 16, 2011, and is spending one year in orbit to characterize the geology, chemical and mineralogical composition, topography, shape, and internal structure of Vesta before departing to asteroid 1 Ceres in late 2012. As part of the Dawn data analysis the Science Team is conducting geological mapping of the surface, in the form of 15 quadrangle maps. This abstract reports results from the mapping of quadrangle Av-5, named Floronia.
