Stefano Nerozzi

Stefano Nerozzi is a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas-Austin in the Jackson School of Geosciences. Stefano is interested in the evolution of the Planum Boreum of Mars as a record of past global climate. Investigations are based on orbital radar profiles and high-resolution imagery. More specifically, his current research focuses on the distribution and paleo topography of water ice deposits and their stratigraphic relationship with aeolian siliciclastic deposits.

Initial Evolution Of The North Polar Cap Of Mars Revealed By Orbital Radar

The poles of Mars host massive amounts of water ice in the form of polar caps, much like Earth’s Antarctica. In the north, a ~1.5 km-thick dome of nearly pure water ice makes up the so-called north polar layered deposits […]
