Mn-Oxide Minerals from a Terrestrial Cave Environment: Biomarkers for the Search for Life on Mars?Mn-oxides are promising biomarkers because microbes greatly accelerate Mn-oxide formation rates and produce distinctive oxidation states. Mn minerals in terrestrial caves form subaerially and could conceivably be present in the subsurface of Mars. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
