SEIS on Mars: First Legacy after Four Years of Seismic Monitoring of Mars

Green Center 924 16th Street, Golden, CO

SEIS, the international seismometer of NASA?s InSight mission, operated on Mars from February 20 19 until mid- December 20 22. For the first time, a robotic seismometer installation was made on the ground followed by wind shield deployment. We present results in term of anisotropy, attenuation and scattering. Seismic source analyses have determined magnitude, depth […]
