[Editor’s note: From a paper by Anshuman Bhardwaj and three co-authors recently published in Reviews of Geophysics.] Are Slope Streaks Indicative of Global‐Scale Aqueous Processes on Contemporary Mars? • We provide a systematic survey and evaluation of the literature covering … Continue reading
At present, liquid water on Mars only exists in small quantities as a boiling liquid, and only during the warmest time of day in summer. Its role has therefore been considered insignificant until now. However, an international team including scientists … Continue reading
Slope streak cluster formation. These are not RSL, but dark streaks created by dislodged material, such as falling rocks or boulders. Beautiful Mars series.
“If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come,” Arapaho proverb. Beautiful Mars series.
This observation shows bright and dark slope streaks in craters in the Arabia Terra region. Slope streak formation is among the few known processes currently active on Mars. The cause of slope streaks is still debated, and both dry and … Continue reading
Beautiful Mars series: Layers in a crater and a serious slope streak. More Beautiful Mars images.
Slope streaks are dark lines that run down dusty slopes on Mars; scientists explain them as dust avalanches touched off by rockfalls or some similar trigger. (Slope streaks differ in nature and cause from a different kind of streak, dubbed … Continue reading
