Where can I find reports and papers that actually draw conclusions from MSL data? I have seen many reports of the form "We are going to go over there to look at possible Hematite etc" but not a lot of "Here is what we found and here are the implications."

Within a year of landing MSL did confirm one thing it was sent to find, which is "There was a lot of water on Mars a long time ago." Ohhhkay. But that was over 5 years ago. I have seen all the pretty pictures, which tell me that most of the parts of Mars we have visited look to the non-geologist a whole lot like all the other parts of Mars we have visited. I have more variety of rocks in my back yard. Maybe a future mission to more volcanic areas will provide something different.

But in the meantime, where are the papers on what has ben learned since starting up Mt Sharp?

You know Curi's been on a good walkabout when you find 'Sgurr of Eigg' images in the PDS smile.gif

New release has the arrival of the MY34 global dust storm and the first half of its decay. Been experimenting with different ways to show the variation in atmospheric opacity. Best I've been able to do so far is a panoramic view of the Gale Crater rim, but I think it's something I need to revisit after the next release.

There were also some left MastCam color images of the Sun on days with dramatically different taus, but I don't know the exact tau values to attach to to them.

I’m trying to update my Blender script and unfortunately I’m having some troubles locating images on PDS.
The script needs the XYZ and RAS image products, they were available from these directories;

XYZ: https://pdsimg.jpl.nasa.gov/data/msl/MSLNAV_1XXX/DATA/
RAS: https://pdsimg.jpl.nasa.gov/data/msl/MSLNAV...XX/EXTRAS/FULL/

I noticed that data from before sol 1870 has been moved elsewhere or has been erased.
Are these images still available somewhere?

I got a note from MSL Dept.Proj. Scientist Joy Crisp on this.....

QUOTE (Joy)
Here are the new locations for Navcam data from Sols 1-1869:
https://pdsimg.jpl.nasa.gov/data/msl/MSLNAV_1XXX/DATA_V1/
https://pdsimg.jpl.nasa.gov/data/msl/MSLNAV...EXTRAS_V1/FULL/
You can always start at the top of the directory structure here for archived MSL images: https://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/volumes/msl.html, click on a green server icon and drill down through the directories.

Nicely done Justin! It's very interesting to see the evolution of tau that way. For the panoramic photomontage, are you sure the exposure time is the same for each photo ? (to know if the variation in hue is due to varying opacity or something else).

Hmm, i had just assumed that the exposure would have a set value since it's part of a standardized measurement. I will double check in the .lbl files when I get a chance. That said I think the darkest days correspond well to what I've been able to glean from the mission team (Sol 2084 was the darkest day from overhead Sol measurements; Sol 2087 was the highest opacity from crater rim measurements).

That set of images uses auto-exposure. The tau images are manually exposed, but the exposures are tailored to the circumstance as of the commanding time. For the horizon set, one thing to note is that the low-Sun ones will not look like the same trend as the high Sun ones without special care.

Here's my current desktop background, made using early sols and excluding low-Sun observations (with opacity based on Lemmon et al. AGU poster... cool.gif ).

Good to know. I did take care to separate the high Sun images from the low Sun images; my panoramic view uses the latter.
