The infrared radiometer is designed to provide brightness temperatures of the surface of Mars by measuring the energy radiated in the 8 to 12 and 18 to 25 μ wavelength bands. The instrument is essentially the same as that flown on the Mariner Mars 1969 missions, modified only to define more sharply the field of view. Because Mariner Mars 1971 will orbit Mars, a given area of the planet will be observed at a variety of local times, and the characterization of the various areas by their thermophysical properties will be more complete than that obtained by Mariner Mars 1969.
