Near‐surface perennial water ice on Mars has been previously inferred down to latitudes of about 45° and could result from either water vapor diffusion through the regolith under current conditions or previous ice ages precipitations. In this paper we show that at latitudes as low as 25° in the southern hemisphere buried water ice in the shallow (<1 m) subsurface is required to explain the observed surface distribution of seasonal CO2 frost on pole facing slopes. This result shows that possible… 
Widespread Shallow Water Ice on Mars at High Latitudesand Midlatitudes
We derive the depth of the water ice table on Mars by fitting seasonal surface temperature trends acquired by the Mars Climate Sounder and Thermal Emission Imaging System with a two‐layer regolith
Decameter thick remnant glacial ice deposits on Mars
On Mars, a smooth, draping unit—the “latitude‐dependant mantle” (LDM), believed to comprise meter thick layers of dust and ice—extends from the midlatitudes to the poles, covering at least 23% of the
Water‐Ice Exposing Scarps Within the Northern Midlatitude Craters on Mars
We report new exposures of water ice along the scarps wall located within craters in the northern midlatitude region of Mars using high‐resolution imagery and spectral data of Mars Reconnaissance
Gullies, polygons and mantles in Martian permafrost environments: cold desert landforms and sedimentary processes during recent Martian geological history
Abstract A range of cold desert landforms are found on the Martian surface that have been interpreted to indicate prevailing frozen and hyper-arid conditions for at least the past several million

A range of cold desert landforms are found on the Martian surface that have been interpreted to indicate prevailing frozen and hyper-arid conditions for at least the past several million years. These

High‐Resolution Thermal Environment of Recurring Slope Lineae in Palikir Crater, Mars, and Its Implications for Volatiles
A thermophysical model for rough terrain is developed that is capable of processing spatial domains of megapixel size. This computational advance makes it possible to characterize thermal
