Mon., 29 Oct., 8 a.m.-noon
A growing armada of spacecraft has steadily increased our ability to explore Mars in increasingly detailed ways. This Pardee Keynote symposium will highlight recent discoveries using these new sensors. Included will be current MARSIS and SHARAD radar sounders' results regarding ice-rich polar layered deposits, first results from CRISM's high-resolution observations of water-related deposits emplaced throughout Mars' history, and new high-resolution images of Mars geology from MRO/HIRISE.
