  • [1] On Mars annual mean surface temperature near ±60° latitude varies predominately with precession and is not closely related to annual mean insolation. Based on the last few million years of orbital history, the precession cycle dominates in a narrow latitude range 54°–65°, in which the margins of the two ice-rich permafrost layers in each hemisphere happen to lie, while mean annual temperature at other latitudes is controlled by the obliquity cycle. The phenomenon already exists on an… CONTINUE READING
