Fig. 4


Pluto temperatures from a seasonal model with thermal inertias Γ = 25 MKS (top) and 3162 MKS (bottom). A Bond albedo of 0.46 and bolometric emissivity ϵb = 1 are used. Left: “surface” temperature fields over a Pluto orbit. The dashed line indicates the epoch of the Herschel observations. Right: temperatures as a function of latitude for early March 2012. “Surface” and “deep” indicate temperatures at the top and bottom of the seasonal layer. “Minimum” refers to the minimum temperature within the seasonal layer for each latitude.
