Welcome to the Resources Page

     On this page you can learn about landslides; look at landslides and mass wasting movements found on earth; research topics; use the Glossary and search the photos of the surface of Mars for landslides. Remember the SAM needs you to identify the landslides on their planet.

Plan of Attack:

  1. Use the Tutorials below to learn more about landslides and mass wasting. Check out the "Sites of Interest" section for even more info.

  2. Take a look at the Landslides in the Earth Photos. Pay close attention to the scarp at the head of a landslide and the hummocky toe. When you view the actual Martian slides you will only have a view from above, so think about how the slides would look from a "bird's eye view".

  3. When you think you are ready, go to the Mars Photos
