Table of contents


i.feo_tio2 calculates the FeO or TiO2 contents from Clementine data. Clementine UVVIS sensor has five bands, UVVIS1 = 415, UVVIS2 = 750, UVVIS3 = 900, UVVIS4 = 950 and UVVIS5 = 1000 nm.
wt%TiO2 = 3.708 arctan ((R415/R750)-y0Ti)/(R750-s0Ti) (1)

wt%FeO = -137.97 ( R750 sin(theta) + (R950/R750) cos(theta) ) + 57.46	(2)
with theta = 1.3885 rad, the 'average slope of the trends in the mare' from Wilcox et al (2005). Map-a-Planet Explorer mentions this set of equations:
