The Development of an Infrared Laser Heterodyne Radiometer to Search for Methane in the Atmosphere of Mars Second Year Report

Abstract

Recent observations of the Martian atmosphere have revealed evidence of trace amounts of methane (CH4). Measurements from orbiter-based missions (such as Mars Express) and ground-based instruments indicate an average methane mixing ratio of approximately 10 ppbv. The source of the methane is at present unknown, but its detection has generated much interest… (More)
