Record #172347:

Mars: planet ice / Oliver Morton.

Title: Mars: planet ice / Oliver Morton.
Author(s): Morton, Oliver.
Date: 2004.
In: National Geographic. (2004.), Vol. 205(1) (2004)
Abstract: Reviews changing view of Mars, particularly relating to ice, prompted by new images from orbiters Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey, and scheduling of three landings for late 2003. Illustrates with imagery from various missions and relates scientists' views on influence of Mars' orbit on polar ice caps, origins of features apparently reflecting glacial and periglacial activity, possible existence of glaciers today, water-ice content of surface deposits, catastrophic (subglacial?) floods, Mars weather, etc. Summarizes Mars exploration, past, present and future.
