CO2 ice at the equator?
Article currently says there's thought to be CO2 ice at the equator. To my knowledge this isn't right. CO2 will be gas at equatorial P/T conditions.
This needs a citation, or if this sentence ("water and CO2 ices") is supposed to mean CO2 clathrates, it needs to say that. Is whoever wrote this still about? DanHobley (talk) 23:41, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
- fwiw - not my text - my edits are usually cited - page history might help I would think - enjoy! :)Drbogdan (talk) 02:35, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
- Brief followup - according to the article page history, seems the uncited text, "It is believed that large quantities of water and carbon dioxide ices remain frozen within the regolith in the equatorial parts of Mars and on its surface at higher latitudes.", *may* have been added by Bryan Derksen (23:28, 13 April 2009) - hope this helps in some way - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 03:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
