Dust and sand transport on Mars

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningfagfællebedømt

Dust is an active and abundant component both in the Martian atmosphere and on its surface. Its origin, evolution and transport mechanisms are poorly understood yet of great scientific and technical importance to the study and understanding this planet. Current research will be presented in which earth based simulations are performed at a unique wind tunnel facility. This work is complemented by computer modelling and the development of new instrumentation for Martian surface studies. It is specifically hoped to learn more about dust electrification, aggregation, the processes of suspension (entrainment) and deposition.
