Surface Winds and Dunes on Mars

Affiliation(s) PI Project period Funded by
DEES Lancaster, Nicholas 09/01/2012 - 08/31/2013 To be used as an interim solution to entering a new agency

Project Description

To assist with the knowledge and expertise in eolian processes. The overall goal is to improve our understanding of the relationship between dunes and winds at the surface of Mars.We will use theories of dune formation to predict bedform orientations based on modeled winds at different resolutions, dust loadings, and orbital configurations, and compare these and other predicted dune properties with observations of active and inactive dune fields on Mars
