    • Biogeochemical probing of microbial communities in a basalt-hosted hot spring at Kverkfjöll volcano, Iceland 

      Cousins, Claire R.; Fogel, Marilyn; Bowden, Roxane; Crawford, Ian; Boyce, Adrian; Cockell, Charles; Gunn, Matthew (2018-09) - Journal article
      We investigated bacterial and archaeal communities along an ice‐fed surficial hot spring at Kverkfjöll volcano—a partially ice‐covered basaltic volcano at Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland, using biomolecular (16S rRNA, apsA, ...
    • The ExoMars Spectral Tool (ExoSpec) : an image analysis tool for ExoMars 2020 PanCam imagery 

      Allender, Elyse; Stabbins, Roger; Gunn, Matthew; Cousins, Claire R.; Coates, Andrew (2018-10-09) - Conference item
      The upcoming launch of the European Space Agency (ESA) ExoMars 2020 rover signals a need for an analysis tool to be created which can exploit the multi- and hyperspectral data that will be returned by its Panoramic Camera ...
    • Mars analogue glaciovolcanic hydrothermal environments in Iceland : detection and implications for astrobiology 

      Cousins, Claire Rachel; Crawford, Ian; Carrivick, Jonathan; Gunn, Matthew; Harris, Jennifer; Kee, Terence; Karlsson, Magnus; Carmody, Laura; Cockell, Charles; Herschy, Barry; Joy, Katherine (2013-04-15) - Journal article
      Volcanism has been a dominant process on Mars, along with a pervasive global cryosphere. Therefore, the interaction between these two is considered likely. Terrestrial glaciovolcanism produces distinctive lithologies and ...
    • The PanCam instrument for the ExoMars rover 

      Coates, Andrew; Jaumann, Ralf; Griffiths, Andrew; Leff, Craig; Schmitz, Nicole; Josset, Jean-Luc; Paar, Gerhard; Gunn, Matthew; Hauber, Ernst; Cousins, Claire Rachel; Cross, Rachel; Grindrod, Peter; Bridges, John; Balme, Matthew; Gupta, Sanjeev; Crawford, Ian; Irwin, P; Stabbins, Roger; Tirsch, D; Vago, Jorge; Theodorou, T; Caballo-Perucha, M; Osinski, Gordon; The PanCam team (2017-07-01) - Journal article
      The scientific objectives of the ExoMars rover are designed to answer several key questions in the search for life on Mars. In particular, the unique subsurface drill will address some of these, such as the possible existence ...
    • Planetary science and exploration in the deep subsurface : results from the MINAR Program, Boulby Mine, UK 

      Payler, Samuel J.; Biddle, Jennifer F.; Coates, Andrew J.; Cousins, Claire R.; Cross, Rachel E.; Cullen, David C.; Downs, Michael T.; Direito, Susana O. L.; Edwards, Thomas; Gray, Amber L.; Genis, Jac; Gunn, Matthew; Hansford, Graeme M.; Harkness, Patrick; Holt, John; Josset, Jean-Luc; Li, Xuan; Lees, David S.; Lim, Darlene S. S.; Mchugh, Melissa; Mcluckie, David; Meehan, Emma; Paling, Sean M.; Souchon, Audrey; Yeoman, Louise; Cockell, Charles S. (2017-04) - Journal article
      The subsurface exploration of other planetary bodies can be used to unravel their geological history and assess their habitability. On Mars in particular, present-day habitable conditions may be restricted to the subsurface. ...
    • Remote detection of past habitability at Mars-analogue hydrothermal alteration terrains using an ExoMars Panoramic Camera emulator 

      Harris, Jennifer K.; Cousins, Claire Rachel; Gunn, Matthew; Grindrod, Peter M.; Barnes, David; Crawford, Ian A.; Cross, Rachel E.; Coates, Andrew (2015-05-15) - Journal article
      A major scientific goal of the European Space Agency’s ExoMars 2018 rover is to identify evidence of life within the martian rock record. Key to this objective is the remote detection of geological substrates that are ...
