Mars Organic Analyzer
How deep you would have to dig to find water ice on Mars is shown by false colors in
this map made using THEMIS temperature measurements. Blue shows where ice would be 5
centimeters (2 inches) deep, while red shows an ice depth of more than 18
centimeters (7 inches). The region lies at 67.5 degrees north and 132 degrees east,
and the scale bar is 6.2 miles long. Click on the image to download a 1.7MB version.

At this high southern-latitude site on Mars (67 degrees south, 36.5 degrees east),
blue colors indicate where ice lies less than 1 centimeter (half an inch) below the
surface. Red colors indicate an ice depth of at least 19 centimeters (7.5 inches).
The scale bar is 12 miles long. Click on the image to download a 1MB version.
