Mars: occurrence of liquid water.

  title={Mars: occurrence of liquid water.},
  author={A Ingersoll},
  volume={168 3934},
In the absence of juvenile liquid water, condensation of water vapor to ice and subsequent melting of ice are the only means of producing liquid water on the martian surface. However, the evaporation rate is so high that the available heat sources cannot melt pure ice. Liquid water is therefore limited to concentrated solutions of strongly deliquescent salts.
