laboratory-based data sets that have relevance to
Apollo Soil Reflectance Data Set consists
of bidirectional reflectance distribution function
measurements of Apollo samples at several wavelengths,
acquired by the Bloomsburg University Goniometer (BUG)
(Michael Shepard, Bloomsburg University).
The Mars Analog
Soil BUG observations are bidirectional
reflectance distribution function (BRDF) measurements of
Mars soil analogs acquired by the Bloomsburg University
Goniometer (BUG) (Michael Shepard, Bloomsburg
Handlens-Scale Image Data Base
is a collection of images and measurements of potential martian analog features and materials taken
at 10 micrometers per pixel, approximately
the scale of a geologist's handlens (Aileen
Yingst, Planetary Science Institute).
Laboratory Shocked Feldspars bundle
consists of data acquired from thin sections
created from a suite of experimentally
shocked plagioclase feldspars, and a basalt
and basaltic andesite (Jeff Johnson,
JHU Applied Physics Laboratory).
Refractive Indices of Carbonates bundle
consists of estimates of the visible to
mid-infrared (VMIR, ~0.3-6 micrometer)
complex refractive indices of the carbonates
calcite, dolomite, and magnesite (Ted Roush,
NASA Ames Research Center).
