Shaping the surface of Mars

live hangout ON-Air with SETI Institute postdoctoral fellow Simone Silvestro and SETI Institute planetary scientists Lori Fenton and Adrian Brown for a discussion of the erosion process on the surface of Mars. Silvestro and Fenton will describe their work on aeolian geomorphology (how wind shapes a planetary surface) and Adrian Brown will talk about the composition and geophysical effects of the dark dunes in the north polar region of Mars, the biggest known dune in the Solar System.

Moderated by Franck Marchis (Senior Planetary Astronomer at the SETI Institute)
