Winds of Mars: Aeolian Activity and Landforms


The following is a short list of general references on Mars used in the preparation of this slide set. Numerous others exist, although care must be taken to keep them in historical context due to the extremely rapid pace with which our understanding of the Red Planet has advanced. No journal articles are cited; if you wish to pursue a more in-depth study of Mars, these texts can guide you to those articles.
