False Colour Ceres / DAWN


This globe uses the false colour map produced by the DAWN team, which enhances the mineralogical differences of the surface, wrapped over 3d relief geometry.

The map map is a composite of different images take with different infrared spectral filters.

Redder colours indicate places on Cere's surface that reflect strongly inthe infrared.
Bluish colours indicate enhanced reflectivity at short wavelenghths.
Green indicates places where surface brightness / albedo is strongly enhanced.
