Abstract Submission Deadline: 15 August, 2012
The analysis of Mars analogue environments on Earth is of paramount importance for the interpretation of the data from past, present and future orbital and landed missions, as well as mission planning (both robotic and human). Sedimentary environments in particular attract strong interest because they can retain the palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental history of the planet and under the right conditions may harbour fossil or present life signatures. The participation of terrestrial geologists is particularly encouraged, in order to identify and promote the many synergies between martian and terrestrial science.
There will be both pre and post conference field trips.
