Importance of Orbital Spectroscopy on Venus

Using five band orbital emissivity measurements in the 1 micron region has tremendous potential to provide global maps of Venus surface rock types. Combining this with 480°C laboratory measurement will poise Venus science for a dramatic improvement in understanding of surface geology and the formation and internal processes of Earth’s twin planet.
