Phase lag φ, maximum diurnal temperature Tmax, and minimum diurnal temperature Tmin as a function of dust thickness δ. The red fit curve corresponds to the case of dust on coarse regolith, whereas the blue fit curve corresponds to dust on bedrock. Broken horizontal lines represent φ, Tmax, and Tmin for the homogeneous cases of dust, regolith, and bedrock, respectively
