Michael Manga, Ameeta Patel, Josef Dufek and Edwin S. Kite Wet surface and dense atmosphere on early Mars suggested by the bomb sag at Home Plate, Mars Geophysical Research Letters 39

Version of Record online: 5 JAN 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL050192

Key Points

  • The morphology of the Home Plate bomb sag favors impact on a wet surface
  • The penetration depth of the bomb implies higher atmosphere density than at present
  • Attributes of bomb sags provide constraints of their impact velocity
