COATINGS, CARBONATES, AND CLOSED-BASIN LAKES: A MARTIAN AQUEOUS STORY
This dissertation explores the history of water on Mars through the lens of the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission at Jezero crater. In particular, I use in-situ rover observations to characterize evidence of past surface alteration at Jezero crater. I also present investigations of a modern lake analog on Earth to contextualize potential past depositional processes within the Jezero paleolake system.
