High-resolution subsurface water-ice distributions on Mars

  title={High-resolution subsurface water-ice distributions on Mars},
  author={Joshua L. Bandfield},
Theoretical models indicate that water ice is stable in the shallow subsurface (depths of <1–2 m) of Mars at high latitudes. These models have been mainly supported by the observed presence of large concentrations of hydrogen detected by the Gamma Ray Spectrometer suite of instruments on the Mars Odyssey spacecraft. The models and measurements are consistent with a water-ice table that steadily increases in depth with decreasing latitude. More detailed modelling has predicted that the depth at… CONTINUE READING
