Abstract

The Mars Observer Gamma-Ray Spectrometer has provided data on background lines due to natural and cosmic-ray induced radioactivity during the mission's 11-month cruise. These data will help in determining, for future missions, the sensitivity for detection of gamma-ray lines of interest that are at or near the energy of measured background lines.
