The Oregon State University Mars MM5 was used in a comprehensive highresolution study of northern polar summertime circulations. Three simulations (L s = 120, L s = 135, and L s = 150) characterize the changing circulation. The atmosphere is dry, and model dynamics are hydrostatic. A modified TES thermal inertia map provides a realistic simulation of the polar thermal environment. The highest-resolution nest (18 km) resolves complex flows near the cap; zonal-mean easterlies ($10 m/s) and zonal-mean kataba…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
