Sep. 12, 2023. An initial version of the
Sample Dossier Bundle is released.
Note: This release of the bundle includes the Initial Reports Volumes. More
collections will be added to the bundle at a future
date. See the
release notes for more information.
The Sample Dossier Archive contains information related to remote sensing and
contact science observations of targets that
are drilled and for which samples are cached
on the surface. The archive provides
scientific context for the samples, and documents what was done during drilling,
including the exact location, appearance of
the target before and after drilling, and
measurements of currents and other
engineering parameters associated with
drilling. The archive also documents the
locations and physical characteristics of
cache points for future retrieval.
Dossier Release Notes
Sample Dossier Release Notes contain
information about the archive and errata, if
any. They are updated with each release.
Collections in the Sample Dossier Archive Bundle
Note: Additional collections will be added at a future date. These collections
will include engineering data related to the acquisition of each core sample
and a User's Guide.
The Initial Reports are near-real-time
records of activities surrounding sample
acquisition, analogous to field notes. They
are preliminary, and the interpretations and
even some of the underlying measurements
will be revised and described more fully in
detailed follow-on publications.
