... recorded to study their effects on dust contamination. We found that more than 50 g of dust and soil were transported into the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) during the 12 EVAs (extravehicular activities) that were measured. The largest amount of contamination from EVA activity was due to open-cockpit...

... the current excavation depth of each borrow pit. Particle size distribution was determined for each of the 39 soil samples (three samples from each of the 13 borrow pits) using a laser light scattering technique (Saturn DigiSizer 5200, Micromeritics Instruments, Norcross, GA), located at the Desert Research...

...) climate typified by dry, hot summers and cool, wet winters ( Hoitink et al., 2003 ). For the past 25 yr, the precipitation at the Hanford Meteorological Station (HMS) has averaged 180 mm yr −1 , about two-thirds of this amount coming in winter months (Nov.–Mar). Potential evaporation, controlled...

... seismic moment rate of a planet from the k ≥ 1 largest events observed during a limited and possibly short‐time span, as can be expected, for example, for lander missions to Mars. The feasibility of the approach is demonstrated with a temporary broadband seismometer that was recording in the Mojave desert...

... of abrasion over the past 1.3 m.y. This unusual evidence underscores the largely unrecognized role that seismicity probably plays in hillslope sediment transport in the nearly rainless Atacama Desert, and perhaps on other seismically active but now dry worlds like Mars. 28 12 2011 6 4 2012 10 4...

... on the hyperarid coast of the Atacama Desert, marine laminated sediments record paleoceanographic variations related to coastal upwelling and regional South Pacific climate conditions. In this work we assess the provenance of lithic particles found in these laminated sediments and we analyze the relationship...

The Australian research organization CSIRO estimated that 16 Tg of dust was stripped from the central deserts, with up to 75,000 t/h crossing the New South Wales coast north of Sydney. Four days later, another intense storm crossed...
