Course Description

Our current understanding of Mars is derived from the study of meteorites, lunar samples, geology, space probes, and landed rovers. Geological processes that are operative on Earth are also operative on Mars and similar planetary bodies, but differing boundary conditions have generated distinct outcomes. These differences have implications for the likelihood of finding life on Mars.
