Introduction: Visible and near-IR (VNIR) spectral data for the martian surface obtained from orbit by the MRO-CRISM and OMEGA instruments are interpreted as having spectral signatures of H 2 O/OH-bearing phases, including smectites and other phyl-losilicates, sulfates, and high-SiO 2 phases [e.g., 1-4]. Interpretations of martian spectral signatures are based on and constrained by spectra that are obtained in the laboratory on samples with known mineralogical compositions and other… CONTINUE READING
