Carbonate deposits on Mars: Insight into their formation processes through terrestrial and synthetic analogues

Project: Research project

Description

Task Description: Co-I Ruffwill be responsible for spectral measurements using the thermal emission spectrometer in the ASU Mars Space Flight Facility spectroscopy laboratory and the analysis of the resulting spectra. This work is directed toward understanding the thermal infrared emissivity spectra of natural and synthetic carbonate samples with the ultimate application to such spectra from Mars. Additional responsibilities include contributing to the preparation of manuscripts and presentations
