Are you just trolling? Nobody here denies that there may be some wet briny mud streaking down the slopes.

Not trolling at all. I would like to find out what IS water on mars and what ISN'T so far I'm just getting confused.
But I thank you for spelling it out in 3 points for me.



#1 - Blue or dark areas on Mars is sand or some other mineral formations (showing up blue in false-colour images).

Ok, so can you or someone else please explain to me (I'm not trolling here)
#1 why the sand is dark? (if its minerals what type of mineral?)
#2 Why I cannot find the original images of these "false coloured' blue sand ocean photos (please post if you have them!)

#1 The sand is dark because it's of basaltic origin.
#2 Both the false and true-colour images originally come from the HiRISE catalogue: www.uahirise.org... So if you find the page that lists the false-colour (IRB) image, you'll find a true-colour (RGB) there also, although RGB images cover a much lesser area than IRB ones due to the way the camera works.
Here's an example page for you: www.uahirise.org...


#3 - Lakes and rivers of water can't exist on Mars due to very tenuous atmosphere and frigid subzero temperatures.

Can you prove that for me? link to an article or some other form of evidence?

Well, scientists have been gathering this evidence ever since robotic spacecraft started visiting Mars. But if you're after something more direct, the REMS instrument on Curiosity rover is measuring the atmospheric conditions on Mars every day: cab.inta-csic.es...

On Jan 10th, it was -58°C air temperature, -62°C ground temperature, and 860 Pa atmospheric pressure. That kind of pressure is equivalent to the range of pressures on Earth at altitudes between ~30 km and ~60 km. Water at such pressures quickly evaporates or freezes. mathscinotes.com...

ugh dammit you are an anoyng troll
1: its basaltic sand
2: these images are false colored sp scientists can see the composition of mars surface minerals
3: in not even going to comment this one
4:nasa has said many times that mars has freezing temperatures

Soo, according to you, they would expose their (alleged) biggest conspiracy, themselves, by posting it on google earth ? Yep, seems legit.

Or maybe, just MAYBE, they just test various equipments, including rover tech, in Greenland, like countless articles on the internet explain, I know, I know, this seems far-fetched, and surely I have too much imagination.

Great pictures

None of those images are of water.

Imaging scientists use false color in order to highlight one material against other materials. They do this by assigning contrasting colors to the specific wavelengths of the light of the materials they are interested in. In many cases, blues are used in contrast with yellows and browns, because the blue false color shows up very well against those yellows and browns.

So in these cases the falsely-colored blue material is certain sands and other soils -- not water.
