Abstract

We explore the feasibility of using Raman imaging as a technique for identifying areas of high astrobiological interest on Mars-like surfaces. This paper will discuss the technique, analysis, and possible deployment of rover mounted instrumentation for identifying biogenic samples from Mars analog environments, such as the Mojave Desert and Lassen Volcanic National Park. We also discuss using this technique for the non- destructive, in situ identification snow algae found in harsh environments.
