  • Mantle
  • Crust
  • 4 Primary Periods
  • Noachian Period
  • Tharsis Bulge
  • Hesperian Period
  • Amazonian Period
slide3

About Mars…

  • Fourth planet
  • Roman God of War, Mars.
  • "Red Planet"
  • iron oxide

Iron oxide- Chemical compounds composed of Iron and Oxygen. All together, there are sixteen known Iron Oxides and Oxyhydroxides.IrBut here on Earth we call it RUST. oxides

slide4

About Mars…

  • Terrestrial planet
  • Has thin atmosphere
  • Having surface features reminiscent both of the craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.
  • Therotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth.
slide5

Structures of Mars

  • Olympus Mons
  • Valles Marineris
  • Borealis basin
  • 40% of the planet
slide6

Mar’s CORE

  • Iron and sulfur
  • iron oxide (reddish hue.)
  • Major iron component (that is where the similarities stop)
  • Martian core- solid and does not move
  • 2,960 km in diameter.
  • Lacks a magnetic field
  • Bombarded by radiation that killed an potential life forms millennia ago.
slide7

Mar’s MANTLE

  • NO tectonic plate action/assist in removing carbon
  • kind of like a rock paste.
  • There are no numbers for the thickness of the mantle available at this time.
slide8

Mar’s CRUST

  • Mainly basalt
  • From volcanic activity
  • 50 and 125 km thick.
  • Iron oxide dust.
slide9

Noachian Period

  • Noachis Terra;
  • oldest extant 4.5 billion years ago to 3.5 billion years ago.
  • scarred by many large impact craters.
amazonian period
Amazonian Period
  • Amazonis Plantia
  • 2.9–3.3 billion years ago to present.
  • few meteorite impact craters
hesperian period
Hesperian Period
  • Hesperia Planum
  • (3.5 billion years ago to 2.9–3.3 billion years ago).
  • extensive lava plains
slide12

Tharsis Bulge

  • A volcanic upland
  • Extensive flooding by liquid water
