I will give a general introduction to the martian cryosphere, from the large polar caps, to kilometre-scale glacier-like features down to the mid-latitude ground-ice. I’ll talk about some new discoveries that have revealed that Mars has more ice outside the polar regions than previously thought: including evidence from orbital ground penetrating radar, high resolution images and topographic data. These discoveries are important for understanding the nature of Mars’ recent climate oscillations and generating liquid water at its surface.
