  • Treiman, Allan H.; Filiberto, Justin; Vander Kaaden, Kathleen E. (American Astronomical Society, 2021-03-08)
    Light emitted from Venus’s surface can be viewed through spectral “windows” in its atmosphere, in the nearinfrared (NIR) around 1000 nanometer (nm) wavelengths. The NIR emissivity of Venus’s surface can constrain rock types ...
