Finding Caves on Earth, the Moon, and Mars
Scientists are furthering the ability to detect caves on Earth, the moon and Mars by studying the conditions under which caves are detectable in thermal infrared. Finding caves on Earth is important for locating habitats of bats and other animal populations. Martian cave detection is vital to the search for lifeif life existed or exists on Mars, the best place to look will be underground. Scientists recently monitored two caves in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile and identified the conditions under which they were detectable in thermal infrared. Research was conducted by USGS scientists in collaboration with partners from Northern Arizona University and Chile's Universidad Católica del Norte and recently published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.
