Abstract

The AVGR is a unique facility, allowing for the experimental investigation of small-scale hypervelocity impacts in a controlled atmosphere and target bed, with a variation of impact velocities and angles.

The June 2012 AVGR campaign aimed at investigating impact generated seismic signals on planetary surfaces, taking over from past experiments 40 years before. These new shots were conducted with up-to-date sensors and data reduction techniques. The target material and atmosphere were chosen to reproduce Lunar and Martian environments.

Here we provide the data of one of these experiments (Shot #13), with recorded acceleration signals (.sac files) from and impact at 1km/s in a Martian regolith proxy.
