    More Mars Polar ice Images:

    [​IMG]
    Image taken by High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC), by ESA's Mars Express Spacecraft. The crater is 35 kilometres wide and has a maximum depth of approximately 2 kilometres beneath the crater rim. The circular patch of bright material located at the centre of the crater is residual water ice. It cannot be frozen carbon dioxide since carbon dioxide ice had already disappeared from the north polar cap at the time the image was taken (late summer in the Martian northern hemisphere).


    [​IMG]
    Picture shows that water ice in Mars's south polar cap is remarkably clean, with only 15% dust mixed in (Image: NASA/MOLA/Science)


    [​IMG]
    Photographed in early northern summer, this picture was acquired in March 1999 near the start of the mapping phase of the Mars Global Surveyor mission. The light-toned surfaces are residual water ice that remains through the summer season. The band of dark material surrounding the cap consists mainly of sand dunes formed and shaped by wind. The north polar cap is roughly 680 miles (1100 km) across.
