somewhere between equilibrium then,

you've seen the pictures Phage , from repeating patterns of colossus sizes to- macro sand artworks .. tis a very artistic wind, im sure we can both agree on

have you ever been mistaken for a u.f.o whilst doing that ?

Flying at night is illegal.
So...no. Absolutely not.

I only see rocks.

you could always dress as a grey , justified with a backstory akin to two flower's


a tourist with a love for extreme sports , although it probably has already happened

I see rocks too. I don't like getting close to them though.

The Stones had a song about it. "Stuck between a rock...and cloudbase." I think that's how it went.

This is just darker dust/sand underneath the lighter iron oxide coating that gives Mars its familiar red colour.

This material has been exposed when the rover took scooped samples for chemical analysis:


or even exposed by the rover's wheels:


Those tracks appear to be damp, one more than the other, how can you account for the exact effect as slightly damp dirt/sand
under the dry surface ??

Doesn't the low humidity make dampness an unlikely condition?

Well, appearances don't count for much in science, so it's really a subjective opinion to bring dampness into this. Curiosity rover has an instrument that measures air humidity, and the scooped sample (which is the same darker material exposed by the wheels) was analysed chemically. The only water there is, is bound into minerals.

In case anyone's interested, here are the "weather reports" from Curiosity's instruments: cab.inta-csic.es...
I couldn't find humidity data there, but someone on the Unmanned Spaceflight Forum commented to me that Mars is dryer than the Death Valley in California. On the other hand, this article by NASA says that Curiosity's data shows that salty brine could form in the martian soil for short periods of time: mars.nasa.gov...

However, I'm very confident that those dark patches of exposed ground are not damp; they are really just darker material under the lighter iron oxide dust coating. The only lighter-coloured material I've seen on Mars is rocks and mineral veins. For example, these drill tailings:

Way, way drier. Drier even than Atacama. Which is drier than Death Valley.
The dampest place on Mars is drier than the driest place on Earth.

Mars is really dry.

I was quite interested in this , until I went to the page ... half a job springs to mind.. why no wind speed data ?

You must remember that the density of the atmosphere is directly related to size of particle it can suspend. The Martian atmosphere is 0.6% of that of Earth's. Therefore it can only carry dust. A Martian dust devil would feel like someone one above you sprinkling Talcompowder over you from the floor above - barely noticeable. Not like a dust/sand storm here on Earth!

"Dust Trickles".....LOL

Sometimes, the right answer is the simple one.

It's water. Mars has liquid water.

It's time to stop denying the obvious.

I'm sure this will be Main Stream knowledge in 5-10 years. But for now, only us Looney Tunes think so

There is water and ice under the surface



But liquid brines might be abundant across Mars’ surface. So, some further trekking might eventually reveal whether any salty critters still call those soils home.

The probes dug into the ground, examining rocks and performing experiments. In 2008, Phoenix turned up small chunks of bright material that disappeared after four days, leading scientists to surmise that they were pieces of water ice.

Water forms on the rover and there are many pictures that show possible damp, water beading and surface track damp.
There are clouds on Mars (nice cloud shot here)

If these are NOT water they must be life forms.
