The Planetary Terrestrial Analogues Library (PTAL) is a dedicated lithological collection that currently consists of 102 terrestrial rock samples selected to be possible Mars analogues. The ultimate goal is improving future remote mineralogical and petrological analysis on Mars and other planetary bodies based on selected analysis such as Near- Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIR), Raman spectroscopy, Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD).
Find all results, outreach, articles and publications form the PTAL project at EUs CORDIS web pages.
