Event Description

In this web seminar you will learn how to use authentic mission data to investigate the composition and distribution of ices at the high latitude regions of Mars. You will analyze data collected by Mars spacecraft using three different portions of the electromagnetic spectrum—visible light, infrared light, and gamma rays. The seminar also includes information about incorporating a unique student extension activity into your classroom, where students access a free computer simulation illustrating how gamma rays are used to determine the chemical composition of Mars depending on the type of gamma ray photons and neutrons released from the planet.
