A search for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons over the Martian South Polar Residual Cap

Article English OPEN
Campbell, J. D.; Sidiropoulos, P.; Muller, J. P.;

We present our research on compositional mapping of the Martian South Polar Residual Cap (SPRC), especially the detection of organic signatures within the dust content of the ice, based on hyperspectral data analysis. The SPRC is the main region of interest for this inv... View more
