A search of water traces by erosion analysis
The observations on Mars show landscape structures similar to water flow environments on Earth and the Curiosity rover has recently found rocks characteristic of stream beds. However, the surface of Mars is now completely dry and the landscape and sediments are the last indicators of past water traces. This project is centred on the observation of the landscape and the analysis of sedimentation and erosion around the MDRS. His main objective is to determine the respective part of water flow and wind erosion in the formation of the local geographic structures. In case of a typical stream bed is found, the sedimentation structure and erosion will be taken into account to establish a model of the past water flow and his influence on the landscape.
