Mars Odyssey: Water Ice/Winter Observations
NASA's Mars Odyssey detected water ice in the northern hemisphere. During the winter months, the icy soil is covered by a thick layer of carbon dioxide ('dry ice') frost obscuring the water ice signature.
This animation is match-framed to animation #2778 and animation #2780. It shows the areas of ice during a martian winter.
