Scientists Find Evidence For Geologically Recent Shallow Ground Ice At
Mars' Equator

New high-resolution images from the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) show
evidence of ground ice on Mars as recently as 10 million years ago. "If
ground ice was present within 5 meters of the surface only a few million
years ago, it is very likely to persist today within about the upper 10
meters," said University of Arizona planetary sciences Professor Alfred S.
McEwen. "This is especially interesting because it is an equatorial region
of Mars, more accessible to exploration."
