Observations of the global distribution and seasonal variation of the Martian atmospheric water vapor have been made from the Viking orbiters for a continuous period covering a complete Martian year. The seasonal dependence of the latitude distribution of the column abundance of vapor is consistent with a model in which the vapor is in equilibrium with the regolith at polar and mid-latitudes. The results are consistent with there being a permanent reservoir of water ice buried at a depth of 10… CONTINUE READING
