Did it Rain on Mars? Analysis of Valley Networks on Mars in an Intro Geo Course
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students investigate the question of whether it might have rained on Mars by doing an activity based on an article by Hynek and Phillips (2003). Students do a simple drainage basin analysis based on Hynek and ...
