NASA Explores the Red Planet
Mars' South Pole Ice Deep and Wide
Pasadena, Calif. -- New measurements of Mars' south polar region indicate extensive frozen water. The polar region contains enough frozen water to cover the whole planet in a liquid layer approximately 11 meters (36 feet) deep. A joint NASA-Italian Space Agency instrument on the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft provided these data.
Global sea level rise post Pulse water melt -1A - 1B is near 400ft.
Mars having its oceans drawn off into space,..with Southern pole Ice sheet of greater volume.
Suggests both Earth and Mars have experienced a current /magnetism reversal which caused the Northern hemispheres on both planets to lose Ice sheet or water volume to Southern poles.
On Earth...it's snowfall.
On Mars...it's freezing what vectored there as rest of the planets oceans were drawn off to space or frozen under terrains.
