Record #167991:

Water, water everywhere / Timothy N. Titus.

Title: Water, water everywhere / Timothy N. Titus.
Author(s): Titus, Timothy N.
Date: 2004.
In: Nature. (2004.), Vol. 428(6983) (2004)
Abstract: News and views piece discussing paper in same issue by Bibring et al presenting first direct evidence that Mars' southern polar ice cap is primarily composed of water ice, partially covered with a veneer of CO₂ ice. Describes background and how opinion as to composition of Mars' ice caps, particularly the southern cap, has changed with successive Mars missions. Discusses implications, including exclusion of possibility that CO₂ released from southern polar cap during periods of high obliquity could increase atmospheric pressure sufficiently to allow surface liquid water to be stable, and the need to look elsewhere for the CO₂ that once formed Mars' ancient atmosphere.
