Outline Mars, Mars Global Surveyor (MGS), Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) Principal Component Analysis (PCA) Results of PCA on TES data Results of PCA on synthetic data Results of PCA on GCM output Conclusions and future work
Mars Facts A Martian year is 668 sols (Martian days), 687 Earth days A Martian day (sol) is 24 hours 37 minutes 22 sec Atmospheric gaseous components: CO 2 (95%), CO (700ppm), H 2 O (100ppm), N 2, O 2,O 3, NO, H 2, Noble Gases Major Aerosol Components: Dust, Water Ice Atmosphere shows annual variation and diurnal variation Pater, I.d. and L. Jack J, Planetary Sciences. 2001, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
MGS & TES MGS (Mars Global Surveyor) Orbit covers almost the whole surface of Mars One orbiting period of MGS at normal mapping phase is 118 minutes At normal mapping phase, a global mapping takes 7 sols = 3.78 º Ls = hours TES (Thermal Emission Spectrometer) Spatial resolution 3 km Spectral range 200 cm -1 to 1700 cm -1 Spectral resolution 10 wavenumbers (cm -1 ) or 5 wavenumbers (cm -1 ) SNR around 400 at 1000 cm -1 Sample rate around 800 per second
Principal Component Analysis (PCA) [Terminology: Meteorologists call it Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) Analysis, Factor Analysis … I am trying to be a statistician here] Linearly transforms an original set of variables to a substantially smaller set of uncorrelated variables that represents most of the information in the original set of variables Capture the variation of data 1 st principal component (PC1) captures the largest variation 2 nd principal component (PC2) captures the largest variation orthogonal to that captured by the 1 st principal component
Previous work of Huang et al. PC1 is associated with surface or near surface brightness temperature PC2 is associated with atmospheric variability Signal from surface emission (surface or near surface temperature) is dominant
Manipulation of Data When (nadir view), and (thus ). Ignore the strong CO 2 absorption band between 510 cm -1 and 810 cm -1 Apply PCA to the residual spectra.
PCA on TES data: MY25 L s 30 º -45 º

PCA on Synthetic Data Feed the Radiation Model with temperature profile, pressure profile, atmospheric dust mixing ratio profile, atmospheric water ice mixing ratio profile (12 levels) Generate IR radiation spectra with different abundance of dust and water ice Get rid of the surface emission and CO 2 absorption band Apply PCA on data
PCA on GFDL Mars GCM Based Data Geophysical Fluid Dynamic Laboratory (GFDL) Mars General Circulation Model (GCM) Spatial resolution: 6 degrees longitude, 5 degrees latitude, 20 vertical levels Output fields: eight 3D fields, eleven 2D fields Output interval: 2 sols, 2 Martian hours
Comparison between GCM and TES [Smith 2004]
Conclusion and Future Work Atmospheric aerosol variability is well captured using this method. It is independent of the retrieval. Better removal of surface emission would lead to better results. A better radiation model (such as MODTRAN) would improve the understanding of the roles of various species. PCA is a good way to test the GCM and help to improve it. Eventually, we would like to predict the weather on Mars.
