Experiments in Reduced Gravity: Sediment Settling on Marsis the first book to be published that reflects experiments conducted on Martian geomorphology in reduced gravity.

This brief yet important book on sediment experiments assesses the theoretical and empirical foundation of the models used to analyze the increasing information we have on the past geography on Mars. The book also evaluates the need to develop new methods for analyzing new information by providing a conceptual outline and a case study on how experiments can be used to test current theoretical considerations. The conceptual approach to identifying the need for and role of experiments will be of interest to planetary scientists and geoscientists not necessarily involved with Mars, but those using experiments in their research who can apply the book's concepts.

  • Includes figures, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs to vividly explore experiments and outcomes in reduced gravity
  • Provides an outline of planned experiments and questions related to Martian geomorphology
  • Features results from the MarsSedEx 1 Experiment in 2012
