Aileen and Le Corre, L. and Nathues, A. and Schenk, P. and Jaumann, R. and Raymond, C.A. and Pieters, C.M. and Roatsch, T. and Preusker, Frank and Russell, C.T. (2012) Geologic mapping of the AV-9 Numisia quadrangle of asteroid Vesta. Lunar and Planetary Science Conference 2012, 19.-23. März 2012, The Woodlands, Texas, USA.



NASA’s Dawn spacecraft arrived at the asteroid 4Vesta 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, the Dawn Science Team has begun geologic mapping of Vesta’s surface at the global scale [1,2] and as a series of 15 quadrangle maps that are being produced based on Framing Camera (FC) images , along with Visible & Infrared Spectrometer data (VIR) obtained during the High-Altitude Mapping Orbit (HAMO). We here concentrate on our geologic analysis and mapping of quadrangle Av-9 Numisia.
