    Fig. 1 presenting the location and map of mapped boxwork structures

    Map of the mapped boxwork structures (red) within the Gale Crater stratigraphy on CTX mosaic with 2 km scale bar. Upper left inset map of Gale crater shows High Resolution Stereo Camera imagery draped on MOLA topography. Gale crater is 155 km in diameter for scale. Lower right inset shows detail of boxwork structures with a 50 m scale bar. HiRISE images used for mapping include: ESP_012551_1750, ESP_019698_1750, and (lower right inset) PSP_001752_1750. Images centered at 137.302088°E, 4.875233°S.

    Schematic cartoon of hypothesized formation environment for FSVs, ridges, and mounds. Proposed heat budget fluxes governing temperature of the overlying ice mass are also shown, inferred to be governed by incoming solar radiative flux.

  • (a) The Barocap®; is a silicon micromachined miniaturized capacitive sensor head. The measured pressure is fed between the two capacitor plates through an inlet port. (b) REMS-P is accommodated inside the MSL rover body and embedded in the REMS electronics box, as shown on the left pane photo depicting the EM electronics. (c) The measured pressure is let in via a special inlet port on the deck of the MSL as shown on the right.

    (a) The Barocap®; is a silicon micromachined miniaturized capacitive sensor head. The measured pressure is fed between the two capacitor plates through an inlet port. Varying pressure bends the thin silicon membrane. One of the capacitor plates is attached to the bending silicon membrane generating varying capacitance.

(c) The measured pressure is let in via a special inlet port on the deck of the MSL as shown on the right.

  • Topography of regional study in kilometers above a 1738 reference radius sphere. The 1500 × 2700 km × 150 km dimensions. The “cross” marks the Apollo 15 and “circle” Apollo 17 linked by a linear transect

    Topography of regional study in kilometers above a 1738 reference radius sphere. The 1500 × 2700 km × 150 km dimensions. The “cross” marks the Apollo 15 and “circle” Apollo 17 linked by a linear transect. The four circles in increasing size are the thicker mare of the Imbrium transient cavity, Mare Serenitatis, Mare Imbrium, and a plausible KREEP-rich region.

  • Bradbury landing site from orbited Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images

    Bradbury landing site from orbited Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images

    Bradbury landing site from orbited Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images:(a) Peace Vallis within Gale Crater northern rim and its alluvial fan. The landing ellipse, shown in the crater floor, includes a white cross representing the Bradbury landing site; (b) HiRISE image of the Curiosity traverse (white line) from the Bradbury landing site to Glenelg, 500 m to the east. The first 200 m are defined as the hummocky unit. Within this unit, the dark blasted landing site, surrounded by white dashed line, includes the studied samples, localized in their respective sol: Coronation = Sol 13; Stark and Mara0 = Sol 15; Mara1–5 = Sol 19; Thor Lake 1–5 and Preble 1–5 = Sol 22; and Beaulieu 1–5 = Sol 33.

    (a) Various P-T paths used in this study with highlighted endmembers P-T paths. (b) Schematic representing fractional crystallization of a primary tholeiitic magma in the Martian interior following different endmembers P-T paths: Path α (green): fractionation at high pressure followed by subadiabatic ascent. Path β (blue): fractionation at medium pressure followed by subadiabatic ascent. Path γ (red): subadiabatic ascent of primary magma followed by stagnation at shallow level. Path σ (turquoise): isobaric fractionation at static pressure (~0.5 GPa). Crustal thickness from Wieczoreck and Zuber [].
