... 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...

... hypothesized to occur under past acid fog conditions on Mars ( Tosca et al., 2004 ; Horgan et al., 2017 ) and in wetter phases in Earth deserts. Blocks were oven-dried and immersed in 2M H 2 SO 4 solution for 48 h. Additional groups (coded ‘N’) had no pre-treatment. In the field exposure phase, samples...

... 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.

..., silt-sized Gobi dust in the Japan Sea revealed a similar MAR pattern and trend as those of Taklimakan dust, implying that coarser Gobi dust (silt) was mainly transported by westerlies to the Japan Sea. Sun [ 62 ] and Tsai et al. [ 59 ] also observed dust storm events in the Mongolian Gobi Deserts...
