Ice on Mars
Homework 1- Ice Ages
Find and understand terrains on Mars that contain or harbor ice
- Research regions on Mars that have been identified to have fretted terrain. Hint: Fretted terrain is most common in northern Arabia, between latitudes 30°N and 50°N and longitudes 270°W and 360°W. Two good examples of fretted terrain are Deuteronilus Mensae and Protonilus Mensae.
- Using JMARS search for and capture images of the following:
- Fretted terrain
- Softened terrain
- Lobate morphologies
- Make note of the following for each captured image:
- Zoom increment
- Map used for each image capture (THEMIS, MOLA, etc.)
What you turn in:
- Compile your findings into a .ppt presentation (print out your slide presentation with speaker notes where you've indicated any important info)
- Label all features
- For JMARS images, label the feature, Lat/Long, Zoom increment and Map ON each slide (with the image).
- Use the "speaker notes" to further elaborate on your findings.
- You should have at least 3 slides
- Slide 1: fretted terrain
- Slide 2: softened terrain
- Slide 3: lobate morphology
