Mineralogic constraints on sulfur-rich soils from Pancam spectra at Gusev crater, Mars
(Geophysical Research Letters, 2007-07-06)
The Mars Exploration Rover (MER) Spirit excavated sulfur-rich soils exhibiting high albedo and relatively white to yellow colors at three main locations on and south of Husband Hill in Gusev crater, Mars. The multispectral ...
Distribution of hydrated minerals in the north polar region of Mars
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2009-01-28)
The previous discovery of extensive deposits of hydrated minerals in Olympia Planum in the north polar region of Mars by the Mars Express OMEGA instrument raises important questions about the origin and subsequent ...
Pyroxene reflectance spectra: Minor absorption bands and effects of elemental substitutions
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2002-06-13)
Reflectance spectra of a suite of compositionally diverse pyroxenes exhibit variable spectral properties which are associated with various elemental substitutions. Those associated with transition series elements, such as ...
Diaspores and related hydroxides' Spectral-compositional properties and implications for Mars
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2000-03-25)
Differences in spectral reflectance properties (0.3-26 μm) of a suite of metal hydroxides (gibbsite, böhmite, diaspore, goethite, and manganite) have been found to be a function of both structural and compositional differences ...
Light-toned salty soils and coexisting Si-rich species discovered by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in Columbia Hills
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2008-12-19)
Light-toned soils were exposed, through serendipitous excavations by Spirit Rover wheels, at eight locations in the Columbia Hills. Their occurrences were grouped into four types on the basis of geomorphic settings. At ...

Spectral reflectance properties of zeolites and remote sensing implications
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2002-09-25)
The 0.3- to 26-μm reflectance spectra of a suite of 28 zeolites were measured and analyzed to derive spectral-compositional-structural relationships. Below ~7 μm, the spectra are largely dominated by absorption features ...
Stability of hydrated minerals on Mars
(Geophysical Research Letters, 2007-10-20)
The validity of recent identification of various hydrated minerals (kieserite, gypsum, hexahydrite, nontronite, chamosite, and montmorillonite) on Mars was assessed by exposing these minerals to simulated Martian surface ...
