First International Martian Cryosphere Workshop (or Wrocshop)

NEW!  Homepage of the 3rd workshop (which has since become the Planetary Cryosphere Workshop)!

The investigation of the Martian cryosphere requires the involvement of various research fields including climatology, geomorphology, glaciology, spectroscopy. All these studies can be supported by the comparison with terrestrial analogs.

The objective of this meeting, held in Wrocław with support from FNP and PAN, was to discuss this subject in an interdisciplinary perspective and to initiate collaborations between European researchers working in these various fields. The Martian Cryosphere Wrocshop took place during three days in Wrocław (Poland) from 15th to 18th, January 2013. It ended up with the birth of an international project aiming at geomorphologicla mapping of the Martian northern Plain, following a propostion from Matt Balme (Open University). In this worrkshop was also held the first scientific meeting to determine objectives and identify instruments for a hopper-based Mars mission project (see the Hopter menu above).

Most oral presentations are available online.
