Assessment of a Luminescence Dating (LD) Technique in Martian Surface exploration
Publication date: 02 May 2006
Chronology is the key to understanding climatically and tectonically driven changes on Mars. The objective of the present proposal was to assess the potential of in-situ Martian sediment dating using luminescence techniques. The work was divided into two parts:
- a) Work package 1 : Review and optimisation of appropriate techniques and instrumentation
b) Work package 2 : Laboratory measurements and proposals for instrumentation.
