Y-Mars Analogue Characterisation



1 Grain size calculations 2 Commercial GCMS data 3 Quantitative XRD calculations 4 Collection of Raman spectra (in .txt format) and detected peaks 5 Collection of VIS-NIR spectra (in .txt format) and background calculations 6 XRD comparison of analogue material to MSL data 7 XRF Major Element Concentrations


This dataset contains a range of analytical characterisations of the Y-Mars analogue, which is intended to simulate a mudstone found in Gale Crater, Mars.
