The Importance of the Study of Igneous Rocks and Compositions to Constrain the Martian Planetary Evolution
Bulletin of the American Astronomical Society
This white paper summarizes the scientific importance of studying igneous compositions in meteorites, surface samples, and through orbital analyses to better constrain the geology of Mars as a whole and better understand the geological processes that have shaped Mars in the past and present.
