Spinning up a dust devil in the thin air of Mars requires a stronger updraft than is needed to create a similar vortex on Earth, according to research at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH)… “To start a dust … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 26, 2014. Today’s VIS image of the northern plains show hundreds of dust devil tracks. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
HiRISE has captured some stunning images of dust devils in action, but the overall sample remains fairly limited. Both Mars Orbiter Camera and HiRISE images in this general region have a fairly high rate of capturing dust devils (sometimes several … Continue reading

THEMIS Image of the Day, February 12, 2014. Today’s VIS image shows a different part of Utopia Planitia than yesterday’s image. Both are marked with hundreds of dust devil tracks. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, February 11, 2014. The dark markings in this VIS image are tracks made by the passage of “dust devils”. Dust devils are common in the extensive plains of the northern latitudes. This image is located … Continue reading
Extending earlier work, a team of Mars scientists led by Dennis Reiss (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Germany) has made simultaneous (or near-) observations of dust devil speeds using cameras on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The cameras include CRISM, CTX, and HiRISE. The … Continue reading
