EVA #010


Purpose of EVA: To collect samples of concretions, soil, water and rocks. To mark the locations of different types of weathering and concretions.

Narrative: Our second EVA to the Kissing Camel Ridge was to explore the western side of the ride. We found the cross-bedding sample just near the road; I explained its formation to Annalea and Rajvi. Annalea drew the geomorphology of the area. Rajvi and I were taking slope measurements of the sandstone beds. Later we did rock hunting on the base to understand the area more. We found the contacts, types of weathering and rocks which can be found on Mars.
