Name
Layered Silicates Database
Description
Layered Silicates Database is managed by Clay Minerals Laboratory of the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CML, IGS PAS). The aim of LSD is to present spectra of layered silicates amd other related materials, with emphasis of minerals that are suspected to be present on Mars. Among others, LSD contains: (1) Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) Mid Infrared spectra of smectites in H2O and D2O wet states under various relative humidities; (2) Diffuse Reflectance (DRIFT) Mid Infrared spectra of chlorites heated in situ up to 800°C, which are used to document changes in chlorite structure during dehydroxylation
