Article first published online: 7 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgre.20061

Key Points

  • The MER Rock Abrasion Tool grind energy is linked to rock compressive strength
  • Adirondack-class basalts are weaker than fresh terrestrial basalt
  • Rocks in Columbia Hills are consistent with impactites or volanoclastics
