Thermal properties of planetary surfaces


Poster and abstract presented at AGU in San Francisco in December 2014



Marta Kubiak received M.S. degree in geography (spec. geoinformation) from the Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) in Poznań, Poland, in 2008. She obtained Ph.D. degree in Earth Sciences from the AMU, Poznań, Poland, in 2013.

Since 2013, she is an assistant professor in Wroclaw Research Center of the Institute of Geological Sciences PAS. Since this time, she works also as a postdoc in the Foundation for Polish Science WROONA project. From 2003 to 2008 she was a Ph.D. student at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland. She was investigating the relations of land surface temperature to selected elements of a geographical environment of the Wolin Island using remote sensing data, geoinformation techniques and modeling. From march to may 2013, she was doing a training in Institut für Kartographie und Geoinformatik/ GIS-Zentrum, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany within the project: Data integration and fusion, data quality. Since 2013 her research focuses on the thermal characteristics of Martian surface. She invited a new method for high-resolution thermal inertia mapping of mountain slopes on Mars.
