Analysis of Martian Pressure Data to Investigate Potential CO2 Adsorption [#2607]
Martian atmosphere / Many complex processes / Is there adsorption?
Bickel V. T.* Conway S. J. Thomas N. Read M. Valantinas A. et al.
Exploring CaSSIS with Machine Learning — The Search for Dust Devils on Mars [#1479]
We track the global, seasonal, and diurnal occurrence of dust devils on Mars using a neural network and CaSSIS color images.
Kong J.* Lundquist J. K. Hayne P. O.
Reconstruction of Prevailing Surface Wind Regimes on Mars Using ECMWF Reanalysis Data, Remote Sensing Images of Aeolian Landforms, and a Convolutional Neural Network [#2814]
We are applying deep learning with the remote sensing data of aeolian features and wind data on Earth as a reference for reconstructing the winds on Mars.
Gary-Bicas C. E.* Rogers A. D. Piqueux S.
Accounting for Cloud Radiative Effects in Thermal Modeling of Martian Tropical and Equatorial Surfaces and Subsurfaces [#1212]
We used an empirical approach to estimate cloud radiative flux as a function of latitude across multiple Ls and and latitudes within five narrow longitude bands.

Combining Mars 2020/MEDA, MRO/MCS, and EMARS Datasets to Produce Vertical Profiles of Temperature at Jezero Crater, Mars [#2255]
We aim to construct the vertical profile of temperature at Jezero Crater from the surface up to about 20 km using a wide range of available data.
Parks M. C.* Heavens N. G. Busch M. W.
Searching for Electric Charging of Dust Particles During the 2018 Mars Dust Storm with the Very Large Array [#2365]
Using the VLA to look for L-band, non-thermal emission from Mars could allow for novel detection methods of electric discharge during dusty weather events.
Nelson J.* Riousset J. A.
Influence of Primary and Secondary Electron Ionization Within Townsend Discharges [#2896]
We propose an analysis of Townsend’s theory on self-sustained discharges and its gas coefficients for parallel plate electrodes and non uniform geometries.

Ionospheric Constraints at Mars Derived from Surface and Orbiting Assets [#1160]
This presentation describes novel techniques for constraining the electron content of the ionosphere of Mars using Mars surface-based and orbiting spacecraft.

Ion Drifts in the Upper Ionosphere of Mars [#1342]
The martian ionospheric drifts are inferred from the model analysis of the electron density profiles observed with the radio science experiment onboard MAVEN.

Detection of Interplanetary Dust and Its Effect on Production and Density of Atmospheric and Metallic Ion Layers: Comparison with MAVEN/ROSE Observations [#1589]
We calculate the impact of interplanetary dust particles on the ionospheric structure of Mars and compare it with the MAVEN/ROSE observations.
