When I created this page, I put the pronunciations in as an extra fillip. They are not essential to the page. Since they have become "controversial" due to the crusading zeal of a certain editor, I think it's better to take them out than continue reverting his replacement transcription, which is totally unacceptable as a guide to pronunciation.

Your opinion, which others may disagree with. If you would point out any actual errors, those could be corrected. kwami (talk) 04:15, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
The differences mostly boil down to conventions, such as whether the vowel of toe should be transcribed /toʊ/ or /to/, which is a pretty silly thing to fight about. If it's that important to you, bring it up at MOS so that we can keep everything together here. There were a few actual differences in pronunciation as well, but I think I've checked most of them with the OED or other dictionaries. Let me know if I missed anything. — kwami (talk) 02:28, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Good article. I'm linking to this from my Geology of Mars article. I hope you don't mind if I make a few changes to this one. Mainly copy edits and minor changes to clarify some points. Schaffman (talk) 11:52, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Nature of the dark areas[edit]

I believe the dark areas are mainly regions where the dust is cleared, revealing a dark rocky lag deposit. Though some of the dark patches may be depositional in nature, I think we should go with the majority of cases rather than the exceptions. I will change accordingly.
