Introduction: Laboratory mixtures and spectral parameters were created to better characterize and detect kaolinite in the Mawrth Vallis region of Mars where Al-phyllosilicates, including kaolinite and montmorillonite, have been detected. We have prepared laboratory mixtures of the phyllosilicate minerals montmorillonite with kaolinite in seven intervals to better characterize spectra of Mars. Kaolinite and montmorillonite have been detected in hyperspectral visible/near-infrared (VNIR) Compact… CONTINUE READING
