Present-day aeolian activity in Herschel Crater, Mars
Published in Icarus
We estimate an average dune migration of 0.8 m and a minimum ripple migration of 1.1 m in a time span of 3.7 Earth-years. These dunes and ripples are mainly shaped by prevailing winds coming from the north, however we also report the presence of secondary winds which elongate the barchans horns. Such a complex wind scenario is likely caused by the...
The case for a modern multiwavelength, polarization-sensitive LIDAR in orbit around Mars
Published in Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer
We present the scientific case to build a multiple-wavelength, active, near-infrared (NIR) instrument to measure the reflected intensity and polarization characteristics of backscattered radiation from planetary surfaces and atmospheres. We focus on the ability of such an instrument to enhance, potentially revolutionize, our understanding of climat...
