Next Steps in Mars Polar Science: In Situ Subsurface Exploration of the North Polar Layered Deposits
Panel Selection: Mars: Not Phobos and Deimos.
Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory
The polar regions of Mars represent a unique environment for determining the mechanisms of martian climate change over geological time. Using terrestrial paleoclimatology methods, subsurface access to the polar layer deposits should be a high priority for future Mars exploration.
