Mars: Abundant Recurring Slope Lineae (RSL) Following the Planet‐Encircling Dust Event (PEDE) of 2018
Recurring slope lineae (RSL) are dark linear markings on Mars that regrow annually and likely originate from the flow of either liquid water or granular material. Following the great dust storm (or


Heat Transfer I
Recent gullies on Mars and the source of liquid water
Geologic features resembling terrestrial water-carved gullies imply that liquid water has flowed recently on the surface of Mars and challenge our views of the present-day low-temperature
On the possibility of liquid water on present‐day Mars
Using a validated general circulation model, we determine where and for how long the surface pressure and surface temperature on Mars meet the minimum requirements for the existence of liquid water
Dark slope streaks on Mars: Are aqueous processes involved?
Concentrations of dark slope streaks occur in the equatorial latitudes of Mars, mostly where magmatic‐driven activity dominates the geologic record. Although originally ascribed to wet debris flows,
