Abstract

The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) will have the ability to detect and characterise a broad suite of trace gases in the atmosphere of Mars. Interpreting the results of this mission will require an understanding of how these trace gases are transported from their sources, which may be deep underground, to the atmosphere, as this transport will change signatures that might identify the source of the gas. Here we present results of modeling designed to measure effect of transport on the release of gas from putative subsurface methane sources.
