maybe what is happening is that there is an algal bloom

they create oxygen in the summer , and then use it up in the winter when they die

That's where my hopes are pinned

How do they use it when they die? What's the process?

Oxidation (O2) breaks down dead plant material, reducing the material so that bacteria can consume it and turn it into nitrates, releasing Methane and carbon monoxide gasses. Essentially an extremely slow burn.

Thanks.


Would that create a sharp reduction on the oxygen levels, like we see in this case?

is there Any extremophiles...here on Earth which thrive under the Martian coldness/dry desert conditions we know of ???

extremophile
[ekˈstreməˌfīl]

NOUN
extremophiles (plural noun)
a microorganism, especially an archaean, that lives in conditions of extreme temperature, acidity, alkalinity, or chemical concentration.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Bing search engine~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


perhaps the deep under ice lake in Antarctica or the similar isolated deep lake in Siberia...any mosses/lichens/et al that release oxygen ?

maybe a hybrid moss/slime living in dark caves, which eat minerals and release the solidified oxygen compounds found in the moss/slimes energy source...

too much being said that the primitive plant like life is following life processes of Earth plants...Mars is an Extreme environment for +3 billion years ago when it was more Earth like according to 'some' scientists

I’m not up on all this but could it be a reaction of a gas with the metal on the curiosity rover throwing the meters off?

a reply to: Stu112

It isn't a sudden release of gas as they are persistent levels through the specific time period repeated over time so it seems whatever is causing it is going through a cycle that is a part of Mars , whether that's a geological or biological part of Mars is up for debate but it could hint at the latter.

There's life on Mars and they know it.

The official narrative regarding the Martian atmosphere has changed countless times since i was a child.

Go look at the pictures of the planet from Viking then compare them to those after backyard telescopes were capable of making out polar features etc.

When you have a monopoly on the science you can skew it anyway you like. Pretty much NASA's whole history.

NASA only has a monopoly for those that ignore all the other scientists.

Since plants produce oxygen during their life, it is most likely a lot more than the oxygen consumed to de-compose it.
Of course, Mars atmosphere is so different than Earth... there are probably a lot of other factors that come into play.

NASA pretty much has a monopoly on the equipment and data for space based experiments in the USA.

The USA is not the only country on Earth.

It's the only one on Mars, the planet we're talking about in this thread?

not any more , Elon Musk has the monopoly now , since they all rely on his rockets to get stuff up there

It's the only one on the ground.

Several of the relatively recent discoveries came from ESA's Mars Express, including the first detection of methane on Mars' atmosphere.

teh good thing is , we have now got most of the major players , playing together

instead of being enemies on earth we are friends in space. I just wish that would translate back to earth
its so obvious that when we do work together , without all the mad politics we can achieve great things.

Its just so sad that it doesnt transfer back to earth.

the new season of Mars , covers this really well
as they now have corporate mining on mars in the show
quite interesting , I really hope we come to an agreement that we treat mars just like a scientific research planet
and no corporations are allowed to exploit it and cause damage.
