Martian Ground Ice: Thermal stability, gas-phase dynamics, and in situ segregation

Shallow ground ice in the high-latitude Martian regolith is a major water reservoir in the current climate. An increasingly detailed knowledge of the interactions of global climate patterns and local microclimates is needed to understand the dynamics and history this reservoir, as is an increasingly detailed knowledge of the host soils. I will discuss the interaction of soils and rocks with water vapor, ice, and thin liquid films and how these interactions affect the distribution of ground ice on decimeter length scales.
