Relative Dating on Earth and Mars part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students apply principles of relative dating to a cross-section, then to the surface of Mars.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science:Mars:Geologic History

Using THEMIS Images of Mars Graben in a Structural Geology Course part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Students use Mars THEMIS images of normal faults to learn to recognize features of normal faults systems that are typically obscured on Earth by erosion and/or deposition and to calculate displacement and estimate ...
