We conducted a preliminary study of paleoshoreline features associated with Boon Tsagaan Nuur, Tsagaan Nuur, and¨¨Ž. Orog Nuur, lakes located in the Gobi–Altai transition zone of the Valley of Lakes Dolina Ozor which stretches from central to western Mongolia. The paleoshoreline features were first identified on RADARSAT satellite SAR imagery. We(More)

At the time before ∼3.5 Ga that life originated and began to spread on Earth, Mars was a wetter and more geologically dynamic planet than it is today. The Argyre basin, in the southern cratered highlands of Mars, formed from a giant impact at ∼3.93 Ga, which generated an enormous basin approximately 1800 km in diameter. The early post-impact environment of(More)

It has been proposed that ~3.4 billion years ago an ocean fed by enormous catastrophic floods covered most of the Martian northern lowlands. However, a persistent problem with this hypothesis is the lack of definitive paleoshoreline features. Here, based on geomorphic and thermal image mapping in the circum-Chryse and northwestern Arabia Terra regions of(More)
The Radar for Icy Moon Exploration (RIME) has been selected by European Space Agency (ESA) as one of the instruments on board of the JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE). RIME is a nadir looking radar sounder designed to study the subsurface of the Galilean icy moons, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. Its main science goals are related to the study of the(More)
A " tier-scalable " paradigm integrates multi-tier (orbit⇔atmosphere⇔surface/subsurface) and multi-agent (orbiter(s)⇔blimps⇔rovers, landers, drill rigs, sensor grids) hierarchical mission architectures [1-4], not only introducing mission redundancy and safety, but enabling and optimizing intelligent, unconstrained, and distributed science-driven exploration(More)
