Third international workshop on the Mars atmosphere: modeling and observations
Start date: 10 Nov 2008
Address: Williamsburg, Virginia, United States
The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts in modeling and observations of the Mars atmosphere and climate system. The martian atmosphere has shaped the planet's history and surface and may have created climatic conditions that were suitable for sustaining surface liquid water and possibly life in the past. The study of the martian atmosphere is also of great interest for studies of comparative meteorology, in order to better understand Earth's atmosphere and to improve our knowledge of the martian environment for future robotic and human missions.
