In video: Exploring glaciers on Mars with Professor Joe Levy

Back to All Stories

Assistant Professor of Geology Joe Levy and his students are using NASA grant funding and images taken from the Mars Orbiter Mission to study glaciers on the red planet in an effort to further understand how that planet’s climate has changed throughout history.

Images provided by the orbiter are of such high resolution that researchers on campus can measure individual boulders and glacier formations right from the comfort of the Robert H.N. Ho Science Center.
