We solicit contributions to a session at this year’s GSA Annual Meeting to take place November 1-4 in Baltimore, MD. This forum will discuss advances in the study of Mars’ ancient sedimentary rock record and will explore implications for surface processes and paleoenvironmental settings of Early Mars. Contributions relating to the study of sedimentary rocks on Mars through the analysis of rover, orbiter, and meteorite data are welcomed and encouraged. We especially encourage new research findings on the diversity and composition of the Martian sedimentary rock record from orbital dataset such as HiRISE and CRISM/OMEGA, outcrop-scale “field studies” by the MSL Curiosity and MER Opportunity rovers, and studies of meteorite NWA 7034.
Abstract submission deadline: August 11, 2015.
