Session Introduction
2:20 PM
Chojnacki M.* Vaz D. A. Silvestro S. Smith I. B.
Assessing the Seasonal Winds that Drive Reversing Sand at Hellespontus Montes, Mars [#1273]
The purpose of this work is to characterize and explain how martian aeolian bedform systems evolve spatially and temporally under multi-directional wind regimes.
2:30 PM
Young B. W.* Ewing R. C. Bishop M. P. Soto A. Newman C. E. et al.
Linking Winds and Sediment Accumulation Patterns at Herscel Crater, Mars [#2235]
Mesoscale wind simulations show that dunes occur in Herschel Crater where flux is low, flux vectors converge upstream, and there is an upwind sediment supply.
2:40 PM
Preston S. L.* Siebach K. L. Lapôtre M. G. A.
2:50 PM
Khan S. Y.* Lewis K. W.
Distribution of Layered Outcrops in the Medusae Fossae Formation, Mars [#3027]
Survey of layering within the Medusae Fossae Formation on Mars using HiRISE imagery in order to evaluate regional stratigraphic relationships.
3:00 PM
Panel Q&A
3:20 PM
Mondro C. A.* Grotzinger J.
High Thermal Conductivity of Water-Saturated Pore Space in Mount Sharp Stratigraphy Reduces Burial Temperatures During Sediment Accumulation [#1323]
Burial temperatures control alteration processes at depth. Lower temperatures may help explain the clay assemblages encountered by MSL in lower Mount Sharp.
3:30 PM
Fawdon P.* Orgel C. Adeli S. Balme M. Carter J. et al.
Hypotheses and Implications for the Geological History of Oxia Planum [#2061]
We discuss what might have happened in Oxia Planum and what the ExoMars rover will tell us about the geological history of Mars.
3:40 PM
McNeil J. D.* Fawdon P. Balme M. R. Coe A. L. Turner S. M. R.
Noachian Landscape Evolution at the Dichotomy Boundary: Insights from Mawrth Vallis [#1252]
Mighty martian mounds / Speak of mysterious past / In silent splendour.
3:50 PM
Dickson J. L.* Ehlmann B. L. Kerber L. H. Fassett C. I.
Release of the Global CTX Mosaic of Mars: An Experiment in Information-Preserving Image Data Processing [#2353]
The first semi-controlled global CTX mosaic is complete and includes polygonal seam-maps linking each pixel to original raw data.
4:00 PM
Panel Q&A
4:20 PM
Malarewicz V.* Bouley S. Baratoux D. Langlais B. Beyssac O. et al.
Hetereogeneities Within the Noachian Crust Revealed in the Terra Cimmeria-Sirenum Region [#2075]
The Noachian Terra Cimmeria-Sirenum region displays significant morphological and geophysical variations, hinting at complex formation and evolution processes.
4:30 PM
Mills M. M.* McEwen A. S. Hughes A. N.
Spatial Distribution of Pitted Cones in Utopia Planitia Follow Basin Contours [#1312]
Pitted cones on Mars / Singly or connected chains / Tracking basin edge.
4:40 PM
El Yazidi M.* Orgel C. De Marchi G. Baratoux D. Bouley S. et al.
Evidence for Early Extension and Pressure Drop Related to Magma Plumbing in Noctis Labyrinthus (Mars) [#1031]
We analysed the fault systems and their relationships to the pits, and we propose a deformational model that can explain the formation of Noctis Labyrinthus.
4:50 PM
Chu Y. Y. Y.* Michalski J. R. Webb A. A. G.
Ancient Caldera Complexes in Arabia Terra, Mars [#1896]
A population of ancient calderas in Arabia Terra, Mars, may perhaps represent an underexplored form of volcanism during the Noachian and Hesperian.
5:00 PM
Panel Q&A
5:20 PM
