A Multi-Disciplinary Approach: How Aqueous Minerals Hold the Key to Understanding the Climate and Habitability of Terrestrial Planets

Eva L. Scheller
Understanding the interplay between geological processes and the climate within the ancient pasts of terrestrial planets holds the key to deciphering what makes terrestrial planets habitable. The climates of both Mars and Earth were drastically different in their ancient pasts. Liquid water once flowed on Mars ~3-4 Ga, creating fluvial valleys and aqueous minerals, until Mars dried out to the desert planet we know today. During the Pleistocene (~ 2.6 Ma – 11.7 ka) and...
