It is well-known that ice exists within Mars’ polar caps. However, similar to Earth, numerous smaller ice masses appear to populate lower latitude regions on Mars. These glacier like forms (GLFs) form a subgroup of what have been identified as widespread viscous flow features throughout Mars’ mid-latitudes. In this seminar I will summarise Mars’ environmental history and focus on the geographic distribution, geometry and surface characteristics of mid-latitude GLFs. I will summarise the current situation in terms of what is known about the physical character and formation of GLFs and highlight outstanding research questions for future glaciological and geomorphological investigation.
