A Mechanism for Recent Production of Liquid Water on Mars

Abstract

Introduction: Though Mars is a cold, dry planet, with respect to the thermal stability of liquid water at low altitudes it is not terribly different from comparably cold places on Earth [1]. In dry air such water would evaporate faster on Mars, at a rate comparable to a 60°C hot spring on Earth, but the heat loss associated with that evaporation would be… (More)
