Wind tunnel simulations of light and dark streaks on Mars.

Wind tunnel simulations of light and dark streaks on Mars. Wind tunnel experiments have revealed a characteristic flow field pattern over raised-rim craters which causes distinctive zones of aeolian erosion and deposition. Comparisons of the results with Mariner 9 images of Mars show that some crater-associated dark zones result from wind erosion and that some crater-associated light streaks are depositional. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Science (New York, N.Y.)
