Abstract

The geological record provides convincing evidence for very recent volcanic activity on Mars (e.g. Horvath et al. 2021, Icarus 365, 114499). In this talk we present the results of Braude et al. (2022, A&A 658, A86), in which a comprehensive analysis was performed of solar occultation observations from the ACS MIR instrument from MY 34 to 35, in search of three tracers of residual volcanic outgassing from the surface of Mars: SO 2 , H 2 S and OCS. We found no statistically significant detections of either of these three molecules, instead imposing upper limits of 20 ppbv of SO 2 , 15 ppbv of H 2 S, and 0.4 ppbv of OCS. We thereby estimated that volcanic outgassing from the surface of Mars must be below 2 ktons day-1 .
