Marsquake Locations and 1‐D Seismic Models for Mars From InSight Data

We present inversions for the structure of Mars using the first Martian seismic record collected by the InSight lander. We identified and used arrival times of direct, multiples, and depth phases of

Controls on Reactive Oxygen Species Cycles in Yellowstone Hot Springs: Implications for Biosignature Preservation on Mars

Early Earth and Mars had analogous environments. While life developed on our planet, the question of whether it did on Mars remains to be answered. Hot spring deposits are compelling targets for

Tectonics of Cerberus Fossae unveiled by marsquakes

The InSight mission has measured Mars' seismicity since February 2018 and has allowed to investigate tectonics on another planet. Seismic data shows that most of the widely distributed surface faults

Mineralogical, Elemental, and Spatial Variability of Volcaniclastics in Fluvio‐Coastal‐Aeolian Sedimentary Systems and Their Insights for Mineral Sorting on Mars

This study investigates the mineralogical, elemental, and spatial variability from source (proximal) to sink (distal) of Merapi basalt‐andesitic stratovolcano (Java, Indonesia) to better constrain

Geometry and Segmentation of Cerberus Fossae, Mars: Implications for Marsquake Properties

The NASA InSight mission to Mars successfully landed on 26 November 2018 in Elysium Planitia. It aims to characterize the seismic activity and aid in the understanding of the internal structure of

Judgment day 6

  • Physics, Geology
  • 2021
In the analysis of the Solar System in context of Complete Relativity, a planetary neurogenesis has been hypothesized and discussed in light of evidence provided. It is also hypothesized that Earth,

MAGMARS: A Melting Model for the Martian Mantle and FeO‐Rich Peridotite

Martian basalts identified by rover in‐situ analyses and the study of meteorites represent a direct link to the melting process in the planet's interior and can be used to reconstruct the composition

Recognition of Sedimentary Rock Occurrences in Satellite and Aerial Images of Other Worlds - Insights from Mars

Global coverage at 0.25–6 m/pixel, and observations from the Curiosity rover in Gale crater, expand the ability to recognize Martian sedimentary rocks, and it is likely that Mars likely has much more sedimentary rock than previously recognized.

Active Mars: A Dynamic World

Mars exhibits diverse surface changes at all latitudes and all seasons. Active processes include impact cratering, aeolian sand and dust transport, a variety of slope processes, changes in polar



Explosive volcanism in the Tharsis region: Global evidence in the Martian geologic record

[1] A global equatorial set of layered deposits on Mars has been reexamined with Mars Global Surveyor data. The stratigraphy, morphology, and erosional characteristics of units separated by thousands

Amazonis Planitia: The role of geologically recent volcanism and sedimentation in the formation of the smoothest plains on Mars

[1] Amazonis Planitia, located between the two main volcanic provinces on Mars (Tharsis and Elysium), is characterized by extremely smooth topography at several scale lengths, as smooth as oceanic

Recent Fluvial, Volcanic, and Tectonic Activity on the Cerberus Plains of Mars

Athabasca and Marte Valles lie on the Cerberus plains, between the young, lava-covered plains of Elysium Planitia and Amazonis Planitia. To test pre-MGS (Mars Global Surveyor) suggestions of

Volcanic geology of Hadriaca Patera and the eastern Hellas region of Mars

Hadriaca Patera is a low-relief volcano in the southern highlands of Mars northeast of the Hellas basin. Layered, friable deposits composing the extensive channeled flanks of the volcano surround a

Chronology, Eruption Duration, and Atmospheric Contribution of the Martian Volcano Apollinaris Patera

Geologic mapping, thermal inertia measurements, and an analysis of the color (visual wavelengths) of the martian volcano Apollinaris Patera indicate the existence of two different surface materials,
