dc.description.abstract The polar layered deposits (PLD) of Mars have attracted considerable attention since their identification in Mariner 9 images, largely due to the possibility that these finely layered, volatile-rich deposits hold a record of recent eras in Martian climate history. The PLD have been a target of imaging and other sensors in the last several decades, but only recently has it been possible to obtain a moderately high resolution image map, using the visible sensor on 2001 Mars Odyssey's Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS). We report here on the acquisition of a 36 meter/pixel contiguous single-band visible image data set of the south polar layered deposits (SPLD), obtained during early southern spring in 2003. The data will undoubtedly be applied to many problems in Mars polar studies. en
