The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) for the Mars 2001 Odyssey Mission
The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) on 2001 Mars Odyssey will investigate the surface mineralogy and physical properties of Mars using multi-spectral thermal-infrared images in nineExpand
Meteorites and the early solar system II
They range in size from microscopic particles to masses of many tons. The geologic diversity of asteroids and other rocky bodies of the solar system are displayed in the enormous variety of texturesExpand
In Situ Evidence for an Ancient Aqueous Environment at Meridiani Planum, Mars
Sedimentary rocks at Eagle crater in Meridiani Planum are composed of fine-grained siliciclastic materials derived from weathering of basaltic rocks, sulfate minerals (including magnesium sulfate andExpand
Elemental Composition of the Martian Crust
Mars Matters Several decades of exploration by orbiting and in situ spacecraft, together with analysis of martian meteorites, have resulted in a wealth of data on the chemical composition of Mars'Expand
HED Meteorites and Their Relationship to the Geology of Vesta and the Dawn Mission
Howardite-eucrite-diogenite (HED) meteorites, thought to be derived from 4 Vesta, provide the best sampling available for any differentiated asteroid. However, deviations in oxygen isotopicExpand
What we have learned about Mars from SNC meteorites
The SNC meteorites are thought to be igneous martian rocks, based on their young crystallization ages and a close match between the composition of gases implanted in them during shock and theExpand
Dawn at Vesta: Testing the Protoplanetary Paradigm
A New Dawn Since 17 July 2011, NASA's spacecraft Dawn has been orbiting the asteroid Vesta—the second most massive and the third largest asteroid in the solar system (see the cover). Russell et al.Expand
Petrogenesis of shergottite meteorites inferred from minor and trace element microdistributions
Abstract As an extension of our previous work on the lherzolitic shergottites (ALHA77005 and LEW88516), ion microprobe measurements of REEs and other selected trace and minor elements were made inExpand
A coordinated spectral, mineralogical, and compositional study of ordinary chondrites
Abstract Mineral compositions and abundances derived from visible/near-infrared (VIS/NIR or VNIR) spectra are used to classify asteroids, identify meteorite parent bodies, and understand theExpand
Chemistry and mineralogy of outcrops at Meridiani Planum
Analyses of outcrops created by the impact craters Endurance, Fram and Eagle reveal the broad lateral continuity of chemical sediments at the Meridiani Planum exploration site on Mars. ApproximatelyExpand
