Extended Mars Theory - Geology

Dear Mars lover Community!

I have some thoughts, some speculations about the planet Mars. Mainly about its surface. If You are interested, please have a read:

And I would be very happy if You would share Your thoughts with me here, or via e-mail about this!

Thank You!

Mars Thermal Inertia

Hi!

I am trying to obtain the thermal inertia from a Themis Nighttime IR image. Can anyone suggest a method to obtain the thermal inertia from an IR image ?

(PS: I am looking at KRC for the time being. If possible, please suggest a different method).

Thanks a lot!!

Martian Trenches Primarily Due To Carbon Dioxide

Water Or Not? Fresh Martian Trenches Primarily Due To Carbon Dioxide Freezes, Study Says

http://www.universetoday.com/113176/water-or-not-fresh-martian-trenches-primarily-due-to-carbon-dioxide-freezes-study-says/

Of the 38 of these sites that showed changes since 2006, the researchers concluded site changes happened in the winter — when it’s too cold for any liquid water to flow.

For over a year, we can see much surprising things about the images we send Curiosity.
The rover is currently in the Gale crater, and during his journey, he crossed repeatedly sedimentary areas.
Marine Fossils ?

Speculations

Might we speculate volcanic underground channels/tubes/sealed from atmosphere?

The much lesser gravity would cause longer horizontal pathways for molten rock to travel.

There seems little or no data to support this. The Palmer paper did not address this
totally un-provable occurrence, therefore speculative is what it remains.

Considering the era of volcanic activity and
supposing this was before the Wet Period, then water could have used these tunnels and I see no reason water/life? might still be present in some of them.

Technology being what it is today a nice
volcanic lined void or cave might make a very safe habitat.

my essay on Mt. Sharp and Gale Crater

I just finished my essay on Mars, "An Interpretation of the Geology of Gale Crater & Mount Sharp, with Implications for the History & Habitability of Mars," which I have spent over one year researching and writing, and in which I present some original ideas. And I'm trying to publicize it prior to Curiosity reaching Mt. Sharp, as that will be a test of my theories, and I'm hoping to get some recognition if I'm right, so everybody is welcome to take a look at it:

Dark areas on surface, what are they?

I'm very sorry for the double topic, I don't know how to edit the previous one or how to delete it. Sad Can any moderators out there delete the oldest?

Hope the image shows up now.

I've been looking at some mars photos and found these dark areas in some places. This is a particularly dark one. What is this, do you have any idea?

I don't know if the image is displaying correctly...

What's Seeping on Mars?

What’s Seeping on Mars? Recurring Slope Lineae (RSL)

RSL were first detected within isolated craters, but we now find them regularly along canyon walls, small mounds, landslide scarps, and other landforms.
