Modelling the distribution of ice at Lyot crater, Mars

Foley, Lori-Ann; Balme, Matthew and Lewis, Stephen (2021). Modelling the distribution of ice at Lyot crater, Mars. In: CryoMars, 01 Mar 2021, Virtual conference.



A study is underway modelling the interaction between the atmosphere and the ice deposits found in and around Lyot crater, Mars, to examine their relationship over varying orbital parameters. A mesoscale climate model can be used to show how the orbital variations affect the distribution of ice in the atmosphere and on the surface. This modelled output can be compared to the observed distribution of landforms, to validate the data and to study how the climate processes control the long-term evolution of ice reservoirs.
