Calibration and preliminary tests of the Brine Observation Transition to Liquid Experiment on HABIT/Exomars 2020 for demonstration of liquid water stability on Mars

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The search for unequivocal proofs of liquid water on present day Mars is a prominent domain of research with implications on habitability and future Mars exploration. The HABIT (Habitability: Brines, Irradiation, and Temperature) instrument that will be on-board the ExoMars 2020 Surface Platform (ESA-IKI Roscosmos) will investigate the habitability of present day Mars, monitoring temperature, winds, dust conductivity, ultraviolet radiation and liquid water formation.
