Earth’s weather is amazing, but compared to the snow and dust storms on Mars, the Earth’s seasonal diversity may be normal.
There have been many studies about Mars. Finding out more will be both interesting and surprising for us.
Now the topic that thrills and encourages many to study is the snowfall on Mars which has increased the ambition to settle down.
Science has discovered new things as it studies many planets in the solar system. Before moving to a new place, people need to know about the weather. A map of Mars has been prepared. Now it is necessary to know the important sources. The melting snow and ice on Mars have become an urgent issue.
There are many similarities between Earth, Mars, and Saturn’s satellite Titan. The study is being led by J. Michael Balatio, a postdoctoral researcher in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Yale University’s Faculty of Science and Humanities.
According to him, in the next decade, the weather of Mars will be like that of Earth for a few days. He claims that this prediction is very accurate.
He said that the data set observed has to be coordinated better and it is yet to be taken to a reliable model. Until then, based on many factors inherent in the weather and climate, people will be able to predict the dust storm there.
Scientists have discovered that many things on Earth are in annular mode. The relationship of many planets can affect the weather. Earth’s climate change pattern is similar to that of Mars and Titan.
Earth’s atmospheric currents, changes in weather, the effects they have on jet streams, the formation of clouds, and the pattern of rainfall around the world have all been in annular mode. This type of weather is expected to occur on Mars and Titan.
This wind-blown hurricane on Mars has been found by Balatio to be similar to the hurricane on Earth’s coast. The same current is present in both these hurricanes. After studying Mars for 15 years, he discovered that the angular mode of Earth and Mars could remain the same.
Huat Laura, a lab supervisor at Balatio and an assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences at Elle, has also developed a climate model for Titan. Based on this, he plans to study the weather on Saturday.
The two scientists also discovered a new secret that this annular mode is more effective on other planets than on Earth. More than half of the winds on Mars and two-thirds of Titan’s winds are in annular mode. Their findings were published last year in the journal Nature Astronomy.
According to Laura, methane rain and methane clouds have been studied in Titan for a long time. This same annular mode can also affect Titan’s jet stream. Based on this, scientists will be able to find the annular mode on another planet.
Batalio’s other statement is that although these annular modes are different, this mode can be ubiquitous in the solar system. It is estimated that a dust storm was also created by this mode.
All these studies done so far will prove to be very beneficial for the security of the mission. This study will find out the risks involved in going to the solar system or reaching space. More than that, it will take a decade, as Balatio said, to figure out how much risk there is when you reach the surface of a planet and what causes the risks.
Due to dust and storms on Mars, sometimes it is as dark as night even during the day, nothing is visible. Unless you can predict when it will happen, it can be very risky for people to set foot there.
Such hurricanes happen periodically. There is no time when the dust flies like this, but it is considered very challenging for science to find out when the dust flies and does not fly.
Earlier, a mission related to Robert was stopped due to dust. The robot first landed on Mars in 2004. Although it sent some data, another plan was to organize it and collect more and more sophisticated data.
This terrible dust storm disrupted every mission of 2019. Now the dust has stopped flying. Moreover, normal flying has been done. In some photos of Mars, snow has been found at the Marine Pole.
Of course, it was very difficult to take a picture of snow falling on this red planet. But in 2008, NASA’s Phoenix Lander took a photo of snow falling on the pole. Lander took a picture of snow falling there at night.
Using data from the same lander and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Aditya Khular, a medical student at Arizona State University, and a group of his friends made public the fact that the snow was something different.
Dust particles are also mixed when it snows. The snow there is much dirtier than it is on Earth. The snow is also covered with dust. Due to this dust, the snow and ice found on Mars are different in color from Earth.
These facts are included in the journal published on August 18 in the journal Geophysical Research Planet of the American Geophysical Union.
Along with these studies, an interesting solution has also emerged. That dust has increased the temperature of the snow or ice and this is why it is believed that it is melting. It is also estimated that there may be some bacteria that can survive in the cold on this surface.
Khular also concluded that the dark-colored snow and ice had melted a few centimeters. He said that after melting in this way, the same substance containing water evaporates and reaches the atmosphere again, and becomes a cloud.
An open-ended study of the process of reaching this ice is still ongoing. This could prove to be a milestone in the climate history of Mars. Many scientists are equally keen on its history. They conclude that the planet has passed through various stages or epochs of ice and snow.
An earlier study by Khular found that the melting of dusty latitudes between Mars and the middle of the Mediterranean could lead to floods. If the snow and ice were really melting, the water might have gotten in the way. Science is also studying the possibility of rain on Mars in summer.
Studies of Mars will continue, but in the space of a decade, it will be easier to predict the weather and then to study human habitation.
