Sample
Name
Sublimation mantle of Smectite on Water ice and Smectite intra-mixture particles 67±31 μm

Diameter
30.0 $mm$
Sample changes
After 29.68h of sublimation, a desiccated layer made of pure smectite, about 8.01±0.59 mm thick, covers the ice particles.
Substrate material
aluminum sample holder
Substrate comments
The sample is positionned in one of the four 60x30 mm compartments dividing the rectangular 120x60 mm sample holder with a thickness of 20mm
Comments
The initial thickness of the whole sample is 20 mm. During the experiment, the thickness of the layers in this sample is variable. See "Sample Changes".
