Fluorides On The Planet Mars

The Atmospheres On Mars.

Mars Science Laboratory rover ‘Curiosity’ provides the 
first in situ analyses of fluorine on the surface of Mars.

Volatiles and especially halogens (F and Cl) have been recognized as
important species in the genesis and melting of planetary magmas.
Data from the Chemical Camera instrument on board the Mars
Science Laboratory Rover Curiosity, now provide the first
in situ analyses of fluorine at the surface of Mars.
This same natural fluoride is in Queensland bore water
