The seasonal carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) cycle on Mars results in a time-variable global redistribution of mass. These large-scale variations are associated with changes in the gravity field, mainly in the two zonal gravity coefficients C 20 and C 30 , which have been recently evaluated from Doppler tracking data of the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) spacecraft. In the present study, we calculated these variations from the mass redistribution obtained from outputs of two general circulation models (GCM) as well as…
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.
