Meridiani

Mars Exploration Rover Launches

Meridiani Planum is near the martian equator, halfway around the planet from Gusev. The region of the planet in which it lies has been known as Meridiani since the earliest days of telescopic study of Mars, because it lies near the planet's meridian, or line of zero longitude.

LITHOLOGIC UNIT MAPPING BASED ON OMEGA/MARS EXPRESS DATA

Two areas (Meridiani Planum and Ophir-Candor Chasma) were chosen to test the methods, some good results have been achieved by compared with previously well-known rock and mineral compositions derived from TES, THEMIS, and Opportunity Rover as well as 1046

was a near-total absence of rocks at Meridiani, and until Sol 446 (see Fig ure 1) none of the innumerable sandy ripples posed a threat to the rover.

As alogical extension of the impact surge hypothesis for Meridiani Planumand Gusev Crater, some or all of the sequences of layered rocks exposed around the edge of the heavily-cratered Martian highlands ( Malinand Edgett, 2000 ;comp are Edgett, 2005 ) could represent preserved older impact surge ...

Martian hematite deposits at Meridiani Planum and other regions are often referred to as “gray hematite.” As the presence of the red slope makes clear, the hematite-rich spherules at Meridiani Planum are not truly gray, as might be expected for terrestrial hydrothermal or metamorphic specularite ...
