    • Bacterial growth in brines formed by the deliquescence of salts relevant to cold arid worlds 

      Cesur, Robin M.; Ansari, Irfan M.; Chen, Fei; Clark, Benton C.; Schneegurt, Mark A. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2022-01-11)
      Hygroscopic salts at Mars' near-surface (MgSO4, (per)chlorates, NaCl) may form brines by absorbing moisture from the atmosphere at certain times through the process of deliquescence. We have previously shown strong bacterial ...
    • Bacterial growth in saturated and eutectic solutions of magnesium sulphate and potassium chlorate with relevance to Mars and the ocean worlds 

      Wilks, Jonathan M.; Chen, Fei; Clark, Benton C.; Schneegurt, Mark A. (Cambridge University Press, 2019-01-28)
      Liquid water on Mars might be created by deliquescence of hygroscopic salts or by permafrost melts, both potentially forming saturated brines. Freezing point depression allows these heavy brines to remain liquid in the ...
