Research Interests

Dr. Eldar Noe Dobrea's primary research interest focuses on understanding the present and past state of water on Mars, and its influence on the geological history of the planet. He is particularly interested in the identification of sites where liquid water could have existed in the form of standing bodies of water or as aquifers and their potential for the development of life.
