4 October 2020 Mineralogy of the Oxia Planum catchment area on Mars
Author Affiliations +
The European Space Agency’s ExoMars Rosalind Franklin rover is scheduled to launch in 2022, with the goal of searching for signs of past and present life on Mars by investigating the geochemical environment in the shallow subsurface and characterising the surface environment. The landing site, Oxia Planum, is a clay bearing plain approximately 200 km wide at the margin of Chryse Planitia. In this presentation we show results of CRISM hyperspectral analysis within the ~2.1 × 10^5 km^2 Oxia Planum model catchment area, which contributes to the geological context for the landing site.
