Presentation to Explore Search for Water on Mars

June 10, 2010

NASA space probes sent to Mars have revealed that water is scarce on the surface of the red planet, due to low atmospheric pressure and temperatures. Geologic, atmospheric and mineralogic evidence, however, suggests that water once flowed across the planet’s surface.

“The Search for Water on Mars” will be the focus of Nadine Barlow’s presentation June 17 at 7 p.m. in Lind Lecture Hall Room 125 on Weber State University’s Ogden campus. The presentation is free to the public.

Barlow, an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Northern Arizona University, conducts research on martian impact craters and what they reveal about subsurface water/ice on Mars.
