Comment on this resource
Satellite images of Mercury and Mars are used to illustrate craters and generate a discussion about their cause. After comparing those images with one of Earth, students explore the reason for the lack of visible craters on our planet. The abundance or lack of water becomes the focal point of this investigation. The role that water plays in obliterating craters is investigated through an activity ... Full description.

This resource provides a general description of this system of canyons located just south of the Martian equator. Included are various images of the terrain: some photographic, some constructed from remotely sensed datasets. One set of images is presented in stereo and must be viewed with 3D glasses.

This set of images summarizes what scientists currently know about the occurrence of water ice and water vapor on the terrestrial planets and satellites in our Solar System. Accompanied by a brief description, the Jpeg images show the ice cap at Mars' south pole, ice rafting on Europa, liquid water covering the surface of Earth (the famous 'Blue Marble' photo), and an impact crater on the Moon that ...

This activity guide illustrates how teachers can use planetary comparisons between Earth and Mars to teach basic geologic activities - i.e. volcanoes, impact cratering, layering, river processes, and crosscutting relationships to help the students understand a planet's history. This lesson is using current science results, as it contains actual orbital data from the Mars Global Surveyor mission. The ... Full description.

This interactive activity lets you superimpose familiar objects onto images of the landing sites on Mars so you can get an idea of just how large they are. The landing sites include the Gusev Crater, Viking 1, Beagle, Hematite, and Pathfinder. The objects to be dropped include a school bus, stadium, Texas, Hawaii, and the contiguous US. The activity is fun and educational, with interesting information ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
The Araona Crater (also known as the Iturralde Structure) is a suspected crater from an impactor which struck northern Bolivia approximately 20,000 years ago. The feature is believed to have been caused by a short period comet striking at 70 kilometres per second and splattering into the muddy alluvial flood plain in the Lower Amazon jungle. The impact created a circular depression which is now roughly ... Full description.
