Introduction: A key question for astrobiology and future exploration is whether groundwater is currently abundant within Mars [1]. Unfortunately, direct detection of deep groundwater seems unlikely with the ground-penetrating radars on Mars Express and MRO [2]. While there are multiple convincing lines of evidence for water on Mars, it will nearly all be in the form of ice unless the volume of water exceeds the accessible pore volume of the cryosphere [3]. Global water estimates based on… 

EVIDENCE FOR POSSIBLE MECHANICAL EROSION BY LAVA AT ATHABASCA VALLES , MARS FROM HIRISE AND CTX IMAGES AND TOPOGRAPHY

Introduction: The Athabasca Valles Lava was emplaced as a turbulent flood within the last 50 million years, making it the youngest known major volcanic event on Mars. The lava was fed by the Cerberus

Limited role for thermal erosion by turbulent lava in proximal Athabasca Valles, Mars

The Athabasca Valles flood lava is among the most recent (<50 Ma) and best preserved effusive lava flows on Mars and was probably emplaced turbulently. The Williams et al. (2005) model of thermal

The Global Distribution of Craters With Alluvial Fans and Deltas on Mars

We present an inventory of alluvial fans and deltas within martian impact craters based on a systematic global survey of Context Camera images. Our database includes 314 fan‐hosting craters, with a

Dynamics of a fluid flow on Mars: Lava or mud?

The Atlas of Mars

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the outermost of the rocky, terrestrial planets that make up the inner solar system. Mars is the second smallest planet; only Mercury is smaller. Surface

A new analysis of Mars "Special Regions": findings of the second MEPAG Special Regions Science Analysis Group (SR-SAG2).

TLDR
Significant changes in knowledge of the capabilities of terrestrial organisms and the existence of possibly habitable martian environments have led to a new appreciation of where Mars Special Regions may be identified and protected.

Diacria (MC-2)

The Diacria quadrangle includes parts of Arcadia and Amazonis Planitiae on the planet’s northern plains (around –4000 m elevation), the northwestern flank of Alba Mons (reaching >3000 m elevation),
