We have modelled the transport of heat in the martian regolith, taking into account the change in thermal properties caused by an increase in water ice content. Under these conditions we have found that the addition of water ice allows for increased ice formation at depth, rather than under the assumption that thermal properties are unchanged. This is important because it will affect estimates of global subsurface volatile deposition.
