Meeting Planning Services

Announcement: June 12, 2020

Since our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our community, the Martian Geological Enigmas: From the Late Noachian Epoch to the Present Day workshop has been postponed to 2021. New dates will be posted on this website when they are available.

Purpose and Scope

Puzzling pits, mysterious mountains, and baffling bends are all welcome at the workshop, where we aim to highlight the enigmatic and most debated aspects of Mars science since orbital observations began. The trans-chronological theme of the workshop attempts to capture the interest of planetary scientists whose work is seminal to Mars' geology but, perhaps, has received less attention than deserved.

The enigmas may be buried…

In the deep past of Mars:

  • Warm
  • Icy
  • No ocean

In Late Amazonian Epoch:

  • Debris flows
  • Dry, wet, or both

In very recent times:

  • Mars methane
  • Endogenic vs. exogenic
  • Glacial vs. periglacial vs. alternating glacial/periglacial

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations will be solicited.

Note: All electronic submission forms are part of the Meeting Portal, which requires users to set up a personal profile to access our electronic forms (setting up a profile is quick and easy, requiring only a few minutes of your time).
