Dear user, changes will soon be made to Orfeo. We will undertake the migration to a new version, another environment (and therefore a new URL: and another provider. Belnet will take over the management of Orfeo in the future. For you, this means that no changes, modifications or uploads can be made to the database Orfeo from the 1st of December 2021 to the 10th of December 2021. The database remains available for consultation. From the 10th of December 2021 onwards, you can reach Orfeo via the new url Our apologies for the inconvenience.

dc.descriptionFollowing the recent detection of HCl in the atmosphere of Mars by ExoMars/Trace Gas Orbiter, we present here the first measurement of the 37Cl/35Cl isotopic ratio in the Martian atmosphere using a set of Nadir Occultation for MArs Discovery (NOMAD) observations. We determine an isotopic anomaly of −6 ± 78‰ compared to Earth standard, consistent with the −51‰–−1‰ measured on Mars’ surface by Curiosity. The measured isotopic ratio is also consistent with surface measurements, and suggests that Cl reservoirs may have undergone limited processing since formation in the Solar Nebula. The examination of possible sources and sinks of HCl shows only limited pathways to short‐term efficient Cl fractionation and many plausible reservoirs of “light” Cl.
