Professional biography

Dr. Susanne P. Schwenzer - Lecturer

I joined the Open University in 2009 for a post doctoral position in Ar-Ar dating and became a Research Investment Fellow in 2013. Before I held post-doctoral positions in the field of noble gases (Max-Planck Institute for Chemistry, Germany) and impact-cratering (Lunar and Planetary Institute, US).

I specialize in tracking water-related alteration processes using isotopic, noble gas, Ar-Ar, experimental and modeling techniques.  I started my career working on Black Forest hydrothemal vein minerals (Diplom thesis), and also used As speciation techniques on tectonically driven, As-laden (up to 100 µg/L) hydrothermal waters from Wiesbaden to investigate into the amount of precipitation of As alongside with the Fe-oxides.  During my PhD I applied noble gas mass spectrometry (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe) to Martian meteorites and related materials.  I received a German Science foundation grant to investigate into the changes inflicted on the noble gas budget of meteorites by weathering during terrestrial residence in hot and cold deserts.  More recently, I applied high-resolution Ar-Ar dating to disentangle the post-magmatic, fluid-related history of volcanic arc plutonites from the Cadomian Belt.  My interest in impact-cratering and Early Earth processes was sparked during my time at LPI in Houston, where I applied thermochemical modeling techniques to predict minerals that would form in the aftermath of large hypervelocity impacts into water bearing planetary crust.  My curent work centres around fluid-rock interactions on Earth and Mars. As a team member of the Mars Science Laboratory mission participating scientist John C. Bridges (Space Research Centre, University of Leicester) I am currently working on the Curiosity rover and will be working on the WISDOM instrument of ESA's ExoMars rover inthe future.

Research interests

I am a mineralogist specialized in noble gases and hydrothermal minerals/processes.  Overall, the current foci of my work are Mars and Earth.  For Mars there are three main topics: Curiosity in Gale Crater, impact-generated hydrothermal systems and noble gases in Martian meteorites.  The questions that I am interested in include Martian meteorite’s noble gases, Martian impact-generated hydrothermal systems and their interaction with the surface and atmosphere, and experimental work related to both areas.  My main interest is in understanding hydrous alteration processes, the effects of mineralogical changes on the chemical and physical rock features, and the local environments crated by those processes.  I am interested in applying results of individual experiments to ongoing and future missions to Mars, especially the Mars Science Laboratory mission, which launched on 26 of November 2011. The investigation of individual mineral assemblages and their formation eventually leads to questions of environmental conditions and habitability on Mars and on early Earth.  To understand the processes out of reach for field based geology, I am regularly engaging in studying processes on terrestrial analogues and experiments.

Mars Science Laboratory Rover Curiosity: The Mars Science Laboratory Mission landed in Gale Crater on 6th of August 2012 and is investigating the geology and geochemistry of the landing site since. I am a team member of the participating scientist team of Dr. John C. Bridges, Space Research Centre, University of Leicester. For our team's work see John's blog. www2.le.ac.uk/departments/physics/research/src/res/planetary-science/mslblog/john-bridges-mars-science-laboratory-blog. image credit: NASA/JPL

 

 

Fractionated krypton/xenon – the Martian perspective: Since ~1988, the Martian atmospheric signature in the nakhlites is known to be fractionated.  Our work led to the conclusion that the fractionated Martian atmosphere in these individuals might have a 84Kr/132Xe ratio of about 8.  This estimate for fractionated Martian atmosphere clearly needs more understanding.  One of our current speculations is that the noble gas signatures in the nakhlites are of hydrothermal rather than Martian weathering nature.  Here, a better understanding of the terrestrial contamination could improve the interpretation. I am currently working with an international team to better understand this topic through literature data base work and long-term, batch reaction experiments under a controlled 'Mars'-atmosphere.

 

Impact-generated hydrothermal systems - and other thermochemical modeling: Impact cratering is a very important process in the history of the early inner solar system.  On water bearing planets, such as Earth and Mars, hydrothermal minerals will have formed in such systems.  I have investigated the minerals that may form in a Martian, impact-generated hydrothermal event up to 150 °C and I am currently expanding the previous models to higher temperatures and a greater variety of chemical environments.  Moreover, modelling the nakhlite alteration mineralogy (in collaboration with J. Bridges, Leicester) has given more insights in fluid and temperature conditions for this type of alteration, which also is relevant to studying conditions on the Early Earth during the Hadean.  To understand this early history of Earth and Mars, I am interested in the investigation of impact craters on Earth, which includes the cooling history, the behaviour of Ar and sources and sinks for excess argon - and the secondary mineralogy of impact-generated hydrothermal systems.

Impact geherated hydrothermal system

But the modeling can lead to even more insights, especially when combined with experiments. Together with my colleague Dr. K. Olsson-Frances I work on exploring habitability and the bio-signatures that could come from microorganism if they were living in planetary environments. We are combining her laboratory experiments with my thermochemical modeling to explore the biologic and inorganic signatures created by alteration of basaltic host rocks.

Excess argon: Another ongoing project is centered around terrestrial rocks from the Cadomian of Northern France and the British Channel Islands. I am investigating sources, pathways and sinks of 40Ar to unravel minute details of the geologic history of the samples. Those samples offer unique insights into the immediate post-magmatic history, and the later evolution of the noble gas signals.

Impact and engagement

Before I started my undergraduate studies, I received training and worked as a freelance journalist. Later, I became volunteer editor for a museum (www.lahn-marmor-museum.de) and helped publish two books on science topics for a general audience. With the Mars mission under way and other topics very timely and interesting for school and general audiences, I developed a passion for public outreach. I regulary give talks and presentations, and generally enjoy to share the excitement of exploring Mars and the new insights we gained.

Recently, I have been interviewed for the Space Awareness intiative. It was a lot of fun to talk about how I got into planetary science and what motivates me to continue every day: The video is here.  If you want to see the other profiles and find out more: http://www.space-awareness.org/en/ (funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme).

The aim of this proposal is it determine the feasibility of contemporary life existing elsewhere in the Solar System. To address this aim we will 1) investigate microbial processes that could occur in proposed transient water on the surface of Mars and in the sub-surface oceans of Enceladus and Europa and 2) assess how the geochemistry within these habitable environments would differ over geological timescales in the presence and absence of life. We will use a unique approach, which combines simulation experiments with geochemical modelling.
