This could allow the water in the lower atmosphere to rise to very high altitudes, providing an intermittent source of hydrogen that can then escape, said John Clarke, a Boston University scientist on the IUVS team.
MAVEN obtained hundreds of such images in recent months, giving some of the best high-resolution ultraviolet coverage of Mars ever obtained," said Nick Schneider, instrument lead of the IUVS based at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, who is presenting the results Oct.
In addition to the IUVS, the MAVEN has seven other instruments: a Neutral Gas and Ion Mass Spectrometer, a Langmuir Probe and Waves, a Solar Wind Electron Analyzer, a Solar Wind Ion Analyzer, a Solar Energetic Particles, and a SupraThermal And Thermal Ion Composition.
