Souvik Mitra

Assistant Professor

I am a planetary geologist. My approach to understand the extra-terrestrial planets and their past by studying surface mineralogy of the planets using remote sensing and their possible geological activity particularly physical and chemical weathering processes are yielded up by investigating potential analogue sites on Earth. Recently, I have been looking at the processes of the aqueous environment on Mars and Moon reported in many scientific journals like Squyres et al, Fairén et al., Arvidson et al, Ehlmann et al. Kerschmann et al., whose works provide unequivocal identification of OH/H2O and comprehensive ideas on initial aqueous environment on Mars and Moon.
