Abstract

Low resolution spectra have been obtained from 2.0-2.5 μm of the dark and light sides of Iapetus. The spectrum of the light side confirms the presence of ice as observed by Fink et al. The spectrum of the dark side is flat with wavelength. This is taken as evidence that the surface of the dark side is an asteroidlike material.
