The images from the instrument are helping researchers learn what minerals are on the Martian surface at many areas, including candidate landing sites for future Mars missions.

The images are on the CRISM Web site, http://crism.jhuapl.edu, which also offers an online map showing the locations on Mars for which the spectrometer images are available. Images specifically for supporting the evaluation of candidate landing sites are also at links from http://crism.jhuapl.edu/msl_landing_sites/index.php#label5.

CRISM is one of six science instruments on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
