The ACA is pleased to announce publication of a new Elsevier book on Mars called “Mars Geological Enigmas. The seventeen chapters of the book addresses particularly beguiling and long-standing questions about Mars’s geological history from diverging and converging perspectives. Some of the keynote subjects are:
- What sourced the enormous flows and volumes that formed the outflow channels and highland-margin contacts of ancient Mars?
Can impact craters be used to derive reliable surface ages on Mars?
Is there a biogenic source of the atmospheric methane on Mars?
Does water flow on Martian slopes or at/near the surface today?
The Atacama Desert, the Antarctic or the Pilbara; are any or all of these possible Earth analogues relevant to the study of Mars?
