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 ...
Reflectance spectra of "featureless" materials and the surface mineralogies of M- and E-class asteroids
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 1990-01-10)
The 0.3- to 2.6-μm reflectance spectra of meteoritic enstatite (nearly pure MgSiO3), iron meteorite metal, magnetite and amorphous carbon, and various mixtures of these materials with mafic silicates have been measured in ...
Detection of rotational spectral variation on the M-type asteroid (16) Psyche
(The Astronomical Journal, 2016-12-28)
The asteroid (16) Psyche is of scientific interest because it contains ∼1% of the total mass of the asteroid belt and is thought to be the remnant metallic core of a protoplanet. Radar observations have indicated the ...
Metal-silicate mixtures: Spectral properties and applications to asteroid taxonomy.
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 1990-06-10)
The reflectance spectra of combinations of olivine, orthopyroxene, and iron meteorite metal show systematic variations in spectral properties which can be used to constrain many of the physical and chemical properties of ...
Spectroscopic approaches for studying faint text on a wooden tally from Invincible (1758)
(International Journal of Conservation Science, 2013-01-01)
In this study we describe the application of X-ray fluorescence, variable pressure scanning electron microscopy and visible (420-720 nm) hyperspectral imaging to assess the surface properties of a wood tally stick that was ...
Reenvisioning an Energy Strategy for Manitoba: Planning for 2030 and Beyond
(University of Winnipeg, 2020)
On March 10, 2020 the Re-envisioning an Energy Strategy for Manitoba: Planning for 2030 and Beyond workshop was held at The University of Winnipeg. The purpose of the event was to initiate a discussion amongst Manitobans ...
The ecology of methane in streams and rivers: patterns, controls, and global significance
(Ecological Society of America, 2015-12-07)
Streams and rivers can substantially modify organic carbon (OC) inputs from terrestrial landscapes, and much of this processing is the result of microbial respiration. While carbon dioxide (CO₂) is the major end‐product ...
Statement on Spectroscopic Imaging in Art Conservation: A New Tool for Materials Investigations
(Leonardo Electronic Archive, 2002-09)
Snow covered soils produce N₂O that is lost from forested catchments prior to snowmelt
(American Geophysical Union, 2016-08-25)
The magnitude of net soil nitrous oxide (N₂O) production from a snow‐covered catchment in a northern temperate forest was investigated. There was considerable net soil N₂O‐N production and consumption through the snowpack, ...
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 ...
