Mars Climate Sounder (MCS)

Mars Climate Sounder (MCS)

Detailed Description

Mars Climate Sounder (MCS): "The Mars Climate Sounder will observe the temperature, humidity, and dust content of the martian atmosphere, making measurements that are needed to understand Mars' current weather and climate, as well as potential variations that may occur. Scientists will use these measurements to understand how the martian atmosphere circulates and varies over time. The measurements will also help explain how and why the martian polar caps vary in response to the atmosphere and the energy input from the Sun." Read more.
