The Trace Gas Orbiter will make a detailed list of the rare gases found in the atmosphere especially Mars Atmospheric Gas like methane.
TGO will measure the geographical and seasonal source of methane and will determine whether this gas is geographical source or a biological source.
Schiaparelli will monitor the atmospheric changes and will record the wind speed, humidity, pressure and temperature.
It will also obtain the first measurements of the electric fields on the surface of Mars and will provide information regarding how the dust storms are activated.
