Radar sounding of ice sheets and glaciers on Mars

Jeffrey J. Plaut (Jet Propulsion Laboratory & Caltech)
Wednesday May 16th - 11am
IPAG Seminar Room - IPAG

For over 12 years radar sounding from Mars orbit has been used to probe the interior of the Red Planet’s ice sheets and glaciers. These observations have provided new perspectives on the history of Martian water and climate. This talk will present an overview of the discoveries made by radar and an update on the most recent research.
