Rafts of Lava with
Strange Infrared
At this location, there are two rafted pieces of lava crust with strange
infrared properties. Compared to the rest of the lava flow, these two

surface, where the temperature changes quickly, is called “low thermal
inertia.” Rocks tend to have relatively high thermal inertia, so this is
