Life on Mars
Current research questions:
- How much water existed on the surface/sub-surface of Mars during the late-Noachian to early-Amazonian (around 3-4 billion years ago)?
- Was Mars' climate generally cold and dry or warm and wet, and how stable were these conditions?
- Did Mars' northern hemisphere host an ocean?
- Analysis of sediments and stratigraphy via rover imagery and orbital mapping to infer depositional settings.
- Comparison with terrestrial analogous sediments.
