  • Edwards, Charles D; Stamenković, Vlada; Boston, Penelope J.; Lynch, Kennda L.;; Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; (2020)
    Here we focus on mission concepts, driving science objectives, and technologies that enable access to a major new frontier in planetary science, the Martian subsurface, with a focus on modern subsurface habitability & life.
  • Stamenković, Vlada; Lynch, Kennda L.;; Boston, Penelope J.; Tarnas, Jesse; Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; (2020)
    Our unparalleled knowledge regarding Mars’ crust and its geologic evolution, combined with our enhanced understanding of Earth’s deep subsurface biosphere, and sufficient development of technologies required to explore the ...
  • Horgan, Briony; Bishop, Janice L.; Brown, Adrian; Lynch, Kennda L.;; Treiman, Allan H.;; (2020)
    We endorse the MASWG vision for a rejuvenated Mars Exploration Program in the next decade, based on the compelling assertion that “Mars has a uniquely accessible archive of the long-term evolution of a habitable planet.”
  • Méndez, Abel; Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.;; Schulze-Makuch, Dirk, 1964-; Filiberto, Justin;; Lynch, Kennda L.; (2020-07-14)
    In this white paper, we suggest a mass-energy habitability model as an example of how to adapt and expand the models used by ecologists to the astrobiology field. We propose to implement these models into a NASA Habitability ...
  • Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; Filiberto, Justin; Lynch, Kennda L.; Mamajanov, Irena; Lyons, Timothy W.; Schulte, Mitch; Méndez, Abel;;; (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2021-08-01)
    The physical processes active during the first billion years (FBY) of Earth's history, such as accretion, differentiation, and impact cratering, provide constraints on the initial conditions that were conducive to the ...
  • Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; Martínez, Germán M.; Filiberto, Justin; Lynch, Kennda L.; Chevrier, Vincent; Gough, Raina V.; Tolbert, Margaret; Hanley, Jennifer; Primm, Katherine M.; Soto, Alejandro; Stillman, David;;;; (2020)
    A white paper submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Characterizing the dynamics of the present-day Martian water cycle is paramount to understanding climatic processes, water ice ...
  • Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; Rathbun, Julie; Keane, James Tuttle; Lynch, Kennda L.; Richey, Christina; Diniega, Serina; Vertesi, Janet;;;; (2020)
    In order to identify trends in underrepresentation in planetary science and related fields and to inform diversity initiatives, we conducted a demographic analysis using the American Astronomical Society’s Division of ...
