Discoveries from Mars: Using a Planetary Perspective to Enhance Undergraduate Geoscience Courses

The wealth of recent data from Mars on everything from geophysics to climate change provides an opportunity to expand examples beyond the terrestrial realm in undergraduate courses ranging from hydrogeology to petrology, from structural geology to sedimentary geology. This site contains a variety of resources for faculty members who wish to integrate examples from Mars into a variety of undergraduate courses such as sedimentology, petrology, and hydrology.
