Below Mars' dust are glaciers with frozen water

Thu, Apr 09, 2015, 12:20 PM
London, April 9: Adding further evidence to the global belief that Mars may once have harboured life, Danish scientists have calculated that Martian glaciers have frozen ice equivalent to over 150 billion cubic metres - enough to cover the entire surface of the Red planet with more than one metre of ice.

The glaciers are located in the belts around Mars, and are found in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

A thick layer of dust covers the glaciers so they appear as surface of the ground.

But radar measurements show that underneath the dust there are glaciers composed of frozen water.
