Carbonate precipitation during anoxic water-rock interaction, with implications for the formation of the Martian carbonates

Abstract:

Despite over a Martian decade (20 years) of surface-based observations, reconciling Mars’ water- altered landscapes with a detailed reconstruction of its former atmosphere has remained problematic. Carbon dioxide is widely considered the main early atmospheric constituent based on expected outgassing behaviour and observed atmospheric isotope ratios, yet carbonate minerals — the expected sinks for this carbon — are only abundant in scarce isolated localities across the surface. While orbital ...
