Phoenix: MECA TECP Derived Relative Humidity

September 13, 2019. Phoenix MECA TECP Derived Relative Humidity data by investigator Germán Martínez are released.  

The Phoenix Microscopy, Electrochemistry, and Conductivity Analyzer (MECA) instrument suite included the Thermal and Electrical Conductivity Probe (TECP). This data collection contains results from the recalibration of the TECP Relative Humidity Sensor. The recalibration was conducted using a TECP engineering model simulating the full range of environmental conditions observed at the Phoenix landing site. The data products have been generated by Germán Martínez and Erik Fischer, Lunar and Planetary Institute, and funded by the NASA Mars Data Analysis Program (MDAP).

This data collection is described in Fischer, E., G. M. Martinez, N. O. Renno, L. K. Tamppari, and A. P. Zent (2019), Relative Humidity on Mars: New Results from the Phoenix TECP Sensor, Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, in press.  The data are currently considered to be still under review at the PDS Geosciences Node. Upon publication of the article, the data will become fully archived Certified Data in PDS.

These products are archived using the PDS4 standard. They have been added to the original TECP derived data volume, which was archived using the PDS3 standard. Eventually the other TECP data on the PDS3 volume will be migrated to PDS4 as well, and will be included in this PDS4 bundle. The existing PDS3 data and metadata will remain unchanged, and PDS4 metadata will be added.
