Judging from the images in that report, our Stu's known about this already... smile.gif


Ha! I wish! smile.gif No, I just helped AJS with labelling some images to illustrate her report at the last minute. I had no idea where we were heading until then.

I don't think it's as much a "beach-like platform"


I agree its an outside chance, but I'd like to know the elevation is wrong so I can stop thinking about it.

The recent exploratorium issues and the general monotoni of Meridiani conspire to make the trip southward from San Antonio to the next waypoint a boring one.

There's a lot of activity in this thread though.

From sky to the rover, on Sol 2229 smile.gif

... and the spectacular Martian dunefield view from Sol 2228, just processed with artificial green channel created from R1 and R2 filters + average sky added colored with samples taken during the processing. I think the colors are fairly accurate, being seen at the end of the afternoon. Enjoy smile.gif

Beautiful! I love the drama of those low-sun-angle late afternoon shots.

Sol 2228! Still trying catching up with Oppy Olivier? 10m/sol should not be much of a challenge for you wink.gif
I like the scenary too and I so happy there no longer such dunes ahead...

That's nice. I half expected to see "Kodak transparency film" on the border.

Ray Arvidson and team just published a lengthy paper on Opportunity's science results from Sol 511-2300.

Mah: There are some ways to get copies of journal papers even if you don't have a subscription.
---If you know someone enrolled in a university or employed by a major corporation, you might ask them if they can get a copy. Before I retired I was able to get articles from most journals through my employer's library. Now, I just ask my son, who is a graduate student with full access to all scientific journals.
---Send an email to one of the authors. In my experience, a respectful request emailed to one of the paper's authors will more often than not get you a copy.
---Finally, Google is always worth a try. Searching for the title usually returns many links to the abstract only, but sometimes you'll find a pdf of the full article that has been stashed away on some university server by someone. wink.gif

I don't know how often planetary geologists post there, but the eprint arxiv is definitely another place to look for free access papers.

Another way is if you happen to be near a university, go to their library and read the article there or copy it.

Or the main branch of a city public library. I used to go to the Los Angeles downtown public library to keep up on my journal reading. The major journals -- definitely Science and Nature, possibly high-impact journals like JGR and Icarus -- will be there.
