Abstract

The Mars Polar Lander carries an instrument package called the Magnetic Properties Experiments. This package consists of one magnet array, one tip-plate magnet, and three Thermal and Evolved Gas Analyzer (TEGA) magnets. The magnet array and the tip-plate magnet are identical to those flown on Mars Pathfinder and will be passively exposed to airborne dust. The TEGA magnets are a new addition to the package designed to study actively sampled material collected from three different depths in the trench that will be dug by the robotic arm soil sampler.
