Glaciation in the Late Noachian Icy Highlands_ Ice accumulation, distribution, flow rates, basal melting, and top-down melting rates and patterns

Abstract

Geological evidence for extensive non-polar ice deposits of Amazonian age indicates that the current cold and dry climate of Mars has persisted for several billion years. The geological record and climate history of the Noachian, the earliest period of Mars history, is less certain, but abundant evidence for fluvial channels (valley networks) and lacustrine… (More)
