Sustainable development goals


Since to know the climatic conditions of landing sites for next Mars' mission it is very important for its development, we analyze here the atmospheric data from Mars Climate Database (MCD). The aim is check out if this data allow us to know how it is the atmosphere and climate of a specific area detailed enough (surficial and atmospherical temperatures, atmospheric pressures and radiation fluxes, among others), and their year and day variability. We applied this study to Nili Fossae, an area of intermediate latitude, longitude and topographic location.
