Mars Dust Cycle Special Issue (2010-2011)
On September 15-17, 2009, NASA/Ames Research Center hosted a 3 day
workshop focused on the Martian Dust Cycle. Nearly 100 people from
around the world attended the 3-day workshop whose overall objective
and primary theme was to understand the processes responsible for the
lifting, transport, and removal of dust in the Martian atmosphere in
the present climate system.
This special issue of the Mars Journal contains papers presented at this workshop and is edited by Guest Associate Editor Robert Haberle.
The issue itself is open-ended in that papers will be added as they complete the review
process. Three papers have completed the
process, a fourth is under revision, and we anticipate the submission
of several more papers before the end of the year. This flexible approach
to publishing special issues is made possible by the Mars Journal's
online nature and it avoids the problem of delays in publication that
result when print special issues are held up until all papers have
completed the review process.
