Abstract

  • In order to better understand the potential for life elsewhere in the Solar System, it is important to understand the tenacity of life and the extreme limits where it can thrive.
  • The subterranean environments of Earth present an opportunity to study isolated systems that are nutrient-limited as a potential analog to the waters of the icy moons of the Solar System.
  • To minimize major human contamination and preserve the cave features, soft-caving techniques must be employed in studying this cave
  • Portable Spectroscopy, the study of light interaction properties, can be a powerful tool in metal and organic material identification in soft-caving
