Description:

This site from Planetary Science Research Discoveries at the University of Hawaii uses recent research on using the ages of Martian meteorites to explore the history of surface temperature on Mars. Results of geochemical analyses from two very different meteorites indicate that Mars has experienced only very brief warm, wet periods during the past 4 billion years. Photographs, satellite images, thin sections, and graphs help illustrate the research.
