MSL: CheMin (Chemistry and Mineralogy)

July 31, 2015. MSL Release 9 includes new CheMin raw (EDR) and derived (RDR) data from sols 805 through 938, November 10, 2014 through March 28, 2015.

Some EDRs for Telegraph Peak were obtained toward the end of the sol range
for Release 9 (sol 938), but analysis of Telegraph Peak was not complete
until after that sol. For this reason, the RDRs for Telegraph Peak are not
in Release 9 but will be in Release 10, which will be available on
December 4, 2015.

CheMin identifies and measures the abundance of various minerals on Mars using X-ray diffraction. CheMin analyzes powdered rock samples generated by the rover's drill and soil samples collected by the rover's scoop. CheMin data sets are produced by the CheMin Team at NASA Ames Reseach Center.
