Abstract

Key Points  Because of ongoing aeolian activity, the Bagnold dunes consist of well-sorted sands and lack the finer grains typical of martian soils  Dune sands are chemically distinct with elevated Si, Mg, and Ni and lower H2O, S, and Cl relative to all previously measured martian fines  Two distinct, water/OH-bearing amorphous components are identified: Fe-, S-, Cl- rich material in dust and Si-rich material in the sands
