Record #118272:

Sunlight penetration through the Martian polar caps: effects on the thermal and frost budgets / Bernhard Lee Lindner.

Title: Sunlight penetration through the Martian polar caps: effects on the thermal and frost budgets / Bernhard Lee Lindner.
Author(s): Lindner, Bernhard Lee.
Date: 1992.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (1992.), Vol. 19(16) (1992)
Abstract: Energy balance model modified to include penetration of solar radiation into and through ice. Discusses effect on: subsurface temperatures or total frost sublimation if seasonal ice overlies dust surface; seasonal ice overlying residual polar cap; exposed water-ice residual polar cap; and residual polar cap which is perennially covered by CO₂ frost. Results indicate that penetration of sunlight into ice helps to stabilize observed dichotomy in residual polar caps on Mars, although effect is small.
Notes:

Geophysical Research Letters. Vol. 19(16) :1675-1678 (1992).

Keywords: 551.32 -- Glaciology.
523.43 -- Mars.
E14 -- Glaciology: biological aspects of ice and snow.
