Maximizing the Science and Resource Mapping Potential of Orbital VSWIR Spectral Measurements of Mars

A revolutionary advance in understanding the inventory, diversity, and stratigraphy of aqueous minerals including their resource potential can be obtained from Mars orbit, using two complementary approaches: hyperspectral imaging at ~6 meters per pixel at 0.7–4 µm, and 1 meter-per-pixel imaging at selected VSWIR wavelengths from 0.4–1.7 µm.
