There is a dearth of information on the order of magnitude of phases like [[phi].sub.M1.sup.s] and [[phi].sub.E1.sup.p] for epithermal neutron capture in medium-to-heavy nuclei.
"Sensors and instruments on the surface platform will also be used to study the subsurface water distribution at the landing site, to investigate the exchange of volatiles between the atmosphere and the surface, to monitor the radiation environment and compare it with measurements made with the radiation dosimeter on the FREND [Fine Resolution Epithermal Neutron Detector] instrument (on the ExoMars 2016 Trace Gas Orbiter), and to carry out geophysical investigations of the planet's internal structure."
