Science Report – April 14th

Sol 2 – Science Summary

Crew 210 sampled vascular plants and lichens from three sites across the MDRS operational area today; the Valley of the Stars, Salt Creek, and the vicinity of the Burpee Dinosaur Quarry. We collected between 15-20 samples, many of which were species not recorded during previous floristic work at the station in 2014. We will press the samples later this evening to preserve them for later identification. Tomorrow, if time permits, we will continue our sampling in the area just around the hab.
