Abstract: The field of Mössbauer spectroscopy (MS) has recently enjoyed renewed visibility in the diverse geoscience communities as a result of the inclusion of Mössbauer spectrometers on the Mars Exploration Rovers. Furthermore, new improvements in technology have made possible studies involving very small samples (1-5 mg or less) and samples with very low Fe contents (such as feldspars), in addition to samples measured in situ in thin sections. Because of these advances, use of Mössbauer spectroscopy in Earth science …
