Latest Happenings at GSECARS
GSECARS was selected as one of only 9 facilities by NASA to receive Research Facilities for Planetary Science funding to support investigators conducting planetary science research.
Studies at 13 IDC by U Delaware and ANL researchers show that there is a complex interplay between surface reactions, topography, and solute transport velocity at the mineral-fluid interface.
