Mars Dust Cycle Special Issue

On September 15-17, 2009, NASA/Ames Research Center hosted a 3 day workshop focused on the Martian Dust Cycle. Nearly 100 people from around the world attended the 3-day workshop whose overall objective and primary theme was to understand the processes responsible for the lifting, transport, and removal of dust in the Martian atmosphere in the present climate system.

This special issue of the Mars Journal contains papers presented at this workshop and is edited by Guest Associate Editor Robert Haberle. The issue itself is open-ended in that papers will be added as they complete the review process. Three papers have completed the process, a fourth is under revision, and we anticipate the submission of several more papers before the end of the year. Read More...
