[title EVA Report – January 19th]
Good night Capcom, here is our EVA Report of the day:
Crew 203 EVA Report 19-01-2019
EVA # 4
Author: Liza Forero
Purpose of EVA:
Geology recognition of outcrops, topographic highs, sediment, canyons and lithology. Take samples and data to be processed to make DEM´s (Digital Elevation Model) and data for microbiology tests.
The EVA was successful. Thanks to the weather, that was dry, sunny and with low winds, our EVA could be develop in the best possible way. We arrived in Tank Wash where we covered two river valleys and some topographic highs.
During the walk we took samples of rock and just two for microbiology tests. We described the lithology or the zone and found some minerals like quartz and gypsum.
During the EVA there were no trouble with suits or with rovers and we went from west to east of the valley. After, we went to the south to a topographic high in the zone and went back to west to arrive in the road again and go back to the HAB.
During the walk we were taking pictures, the register of the stratigraphy and some geologic and biologic samples that were taken to the HAB to be analyzed.
The weather was dry, but we felt how the clays were so humid and plastic because of the water they absorbed with the snow and melted water.
