Abstract

The Mercury Radiometer and Thermal Infrared Spectrometer (MERTIS) is part of the payload on the joint ESA-JAXA BepiColombo Mission, scheduled for launch in 2016. The spectrometer is designed to map surface compositions, to identify rock-forming minerals, to map surface mineralogy, and to study surface temperature variations. In preparation of the experiment we developed a thermal model that calculates surface temperatures based on appropriate insolation conditions and thermophysical properties. In the absence of thermal measurements on Mercury, we validate the model with lunar parameters. The results show good agreement with Apollo 17, Clementine and LRO-Diviner data. With appropriate changes of the orbital parameters and ephemeris data this model can be applied to the conditions of Mercury.
