Geologic Mapping


Planetary maps are useful for visualizing the distribution of surface rock types and understanding regional history. We use remote sensing and sometimes in situ observations to decipher the depositional and erosional history of landscapes.


An ancient martian valley - Hypanis Valles

We mapped the catchment region and the deposit region of a candidate Mars rover landing site to determine the sequence of events and likely source of sediment.

Perseverance rover landing site - Jezero crater

We mapped units within the collaborative geologic map for the Mars 2020 mission team. The map covers the landing and traverse region in western Jezero crater, Mars.
