In situ neutron spectroscopy on the martian surface: modeling the hydra instrument for different mission scenarios

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Neutron spectroscopy has proven to be highly successful in remotely detecting and measuring the abundance of water on planetary surfaces such as Mars and the Moon. Because of the central role played by water on Mars and the need to make in situ measurements of water abundances for landed missions, neutron spectroscopy is being investigated as a technique for quickly determining the near-surface water abundance for fhture Mars missions, such as the Mars Smart Larider (MSL).
