SHADR – Spherical Harmonic Aggregated Data Record
Instrument: Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter
PDS Data Set ID: MGS-M-MOLA-5-SHADR-V1.0
For more information about MOLA SHADR products, see the Data Set Catalog File.
The Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) Spherical Harmonic Aggregated Data Record (SHADR) contains coefficients and related data for a spherical harmonic model of the shape of Mars. When evaluated, the model gives absolute radius from Mars center of mass in meters.
The model is a numerical transform of planetary radius values from the MOLA 0.5-degree gridded data set into spherical harmonics using Simpson’s Rule quadrature.
In ODE, the SHADR product has the following product ID:
