dc.description.abstract Includes reviews and tutorials on broad areas of Martian and terrestrial polar research. Including geology and glaciology of the polar caps, their physical and rheologic properties, and the role of seasonal and climate change in their evolution. Followed by more detailed aspects of Martian polar geology, including the topographic influence of large impact basins on the structure and distribution of the polar deposits, the possibility of basal lakes, and evidence of past glaciation in Elysium and at the poles. How the atmospheric dynamics, surface energy budget, and seasonal cycles of CO2 and dust on Mars affect the formation and interannual variability of the seasonal polar caps. Review of both spacecraft and Earth-based telescopic observations of seasonal cap retreat and their significance with regard to processes affecting cap behavior. Evolution of the Martian climate.
