Geology And Habitability Of Ancient Sedimentary Environments On Mars

Share Job
Suggest Revision
NASAPasadena, CA
  • In addition, high-resolution mapping by visible and near-infrared orbital spectrometers has revealed a diversity of hydrated minerals including clays, sulfates, carbonates, and chlorides on the surface of Mars, suggesting a complex history of diagenesis, aqueous alteration, and mineral precipitation in sedimentary environments.
  • Ongoing investigations by Mars rovers have proven the importance of using high-resolution orbital image datasets together with rover observations to advance our understanding of the evolution of surface environments and Mars ancient climate.
  • Discoveries by recent rover, lander, and orbiter missions to Mars have offered new insight into the diversity of the martian sedimentary rock record and the potential for the preservation of ancient habitable environments within this record.
  • Orbiter images show sedimentary deposits to occur in diverse settings on Mars that represent eolian, fluvial, and possibly lacustrine depositional environments.
