Geophysical Surveys and Geological Analyses of Terrestrial Sites as Analogs to Mars

image: Geophysical surveys of Mars analog sites on Earth are improving our understanding of potential conditions on Mars and how best to process and interpret data currently being sent by satellites in orbit. SwRI field team scientists are performing vertical electric soundings and transient electromagnetic soundings in the southwestern desert of Egypt and the Volcanic Tablelands, California. image: Geophysical surveys of Mars analog sites on Earth are improving our understanding of potential conditions on Mars and how best to process and interpret data currently being sent by satellites in orbit.
