Description
These images were taken by Mars Spirit Rover. Following the order of Sol 1833, 1836 and 1843, Spirit would then move from right to left in this view and order.
I took the small stone in the middle of the 3 on the left in this image as a reference point to determine the angle/direction.

sol 1831-1837 04-March-2009 Slight Progress on New Route
sol 1831-1837, February 26 – March 04, 2009:   Slight Progress on New Route
After initially making good progress on a new route around “Home Plate” to the east, Spirit has been struggling in local terrain on the northeast corner of Home Plate. The route is difficult because the direction is up-slope with a lot of loose, fine material denying the five-driving-wheel rover good traction.After getting about 15 meters (49 feet) away from Home Plate last week in just two drives, Spirit made only 1.4 meters of progress on Sol 1831 (Feb. 26, 2009). The next two drive sols accomplished only about 2 meters each. On Sol 1837 (March 4, 2009), Spirit had difficulty turning to face a new direction, again because of the soft terrain.The plan is to back downslope a little, turn and attack the uphill grade a little more cross-slope.As of Sol 1837 (March 4, 2009), Spirit’s solar array energy production is 282 watt-hours, atmospheric opacity (tau) is 0.742, and the dust factor on the solar array is 0.320. The rover is in good health as it attempts to make its way around the northeast corner of Home Plate. Spirit’s total odometry is 7,602.42 meters (4.72 miles).
sol 1838-1844, March 05-11, 2009:   Change to Western Route
Spirit continued to struggle in local terrain on the northeast corner of “Home Plate.” Several drive attempts failed to make significant progress to the east up the modest slopes consisting of loose material.On Sol 1839 (March 6, 2009) a wheel diagnostic test was performed to make sure a wheel stall seen on an earlier sol was not an actuator problem. The actuator is fine.Drives on sols 1839, 1841 and 1843 (March 6, 8 and 10, 2009) all reinforced the futility of attempting further drives in this direction. Therefore, the project decided to head Spirit in the other direction, west around Home Plate. Spirit will begin to head that way in the sols ahead.As of Sol 1844 (March 11, 2009), Spirit’s solar array energy production is 281 watt-hours. Atmospheric opacity (tau) is 0.755. The dust factor on the solar array is 0.317, meaning that 31.7 percent of sunlight hitting the solar array penetrates the layer of accumulated dust on the array. The rover is in good health as it begins to head west around Home Plate.As of Sol 1843 (March 10, 2009), Spirit’s total odometry is 7,607.68 meters (4.73 miles).
sol 1845-1851, March 12-18, 2009:   Getting Away from a Trouble Spot
Although Spirit will now attempt the western route around the low plateau “Home Plate,” it must first safely move away from difficult terrain around the northeast corner of Home Plate. One tactical concern was a potato-size rock near the inside of the right rear wheel that posed a risk of getting stuck inside the wheel. Short maneuvers on Sol 1845 (March 12, 2009) and Sol 1847 (March 14, 2009) carefully moved the rover away from this hazard. On Sol 1850 (March 17, 2009), Spirit moved about 5 meters (16 feet), getting completely away from this trouble spot.Spirit also conducted some panoramic camera (Pancam) imaging and miniature thermal emission spectrometer (Mini-TES) spectral measurements of various science targets in the vicinity and performed an atmospheric argon measurement with the alpha particle X-ray spectrometer (APXS).Atmospheric conditions have worsened lately over the Gusev site, although no storm conditions have been reported.As of Sol 1851 (March 18, 2009), Spirit’s solar array energy production has decreased to 230 watt-hours, down 18 percent from a week earlier. Atmospheric opacity (tau) has increased sharply, to 1.19. The dust factor on the solar array is 0.313, meaning that 31.7 percent of sunlight hitting the solar array penetrates the layer of accumulated dust on the array. The rover is in good health in spite of dustier skies.As of Sol 1850 (March 17, 2009), Spirit’s total odometry is 7,612.49 meters (4.73 miles).
sol 1852-1858, March 19-25, 2009:   Distance Record for Five-Wheel DrivingSpirit is making good progress around Home Plate to the west. After getting clear of troublesome rocks, Spirit drove 13.8 meters (45.3 feet) on Sol 1854 (March 21, 2009). The next drive, on Sol 1856 (March 23, 2009), achieved a new distance record for five-wheel driving. Spirit drove 25.82 meters (84.7 feet), beating the old record by about a meter. Spirit completed another drive of 12.9 meters (42.3 feet) on Sol 1858 (March 25, 2009).

The sol ahead will see the building of the new R9.3 flight software on board the rover. The rover will boot the new software on the subsequent sol.

As of Sol 1858 (March 25, 2009), Spirit’s solar array energy production is 233 watt-hours. Atmospheric opacity (tau) remains elevated at 1.15. The dust factor on the solar array, 0.309, means that 30.9 percent of sunlight hitting the solar array penetrates the layer of accumulated dust on the array. The rover is in good health in spite of dusty skies. Spirit’s total odometry is 7,665.02 meters (4.76 miles).

Editors Update on 5 july 2015 

Could the same theory apply to the moving rocks on Mars?

Mystery No More: Death Valleys Sliding Rocks

Sailing rocks of death valley

Based on a study released in August 2014:

Sailing stones, sliding rocks, and moving rocks all refer to a geological phenomenon where rocks move and inscribe long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention.

The Death Valley stones move only every two or three years and most tracks develop over three or four years. Stones with rough bottoms leave straight striated tracks while those with smooth bottoms tend to wander. Stones sometimes turn over, exposing another edge to the ground and leaving a different track in the stone’s wake.

Trails differ in both direction and length. Rocks that start next to each other may travel parallel for a time, before one abruptly changes direction to the left, right, or even back to the direction from which it came. Trail length also varies – two similarly sized and shaped rocks may travel uniformly, then one could move ahead or stop in its track.

Tracks of sliding rocks have been observed and studied in various locations, including Little Bonnie Claire Playa in Nevada, and most notably Racetrack Playa, Death Valley National Park, California, where the number and length of tracks are notable. At Racetrack Playa, these tracks have been studied since the early 1900s, yet the origins of stone movement were not confirmed and remained the subject of research for which several hypotheses existed. However, as of August 2014, timelapse video footage of rocks moving has been published, showing the rocks moving at low wind speeds within the flow of thin, melting sheets of ice. The scientists have thus identified the cause of the moving stones to be ice shove.

Based on a study released in August 2014, news articles reported the mystery solved when researchers observed rock movements using GPS and time-lapse photography. They witnessed and documented a rock movement on December 20, 2013 that involved more than 60 rocks, with some rocks moving up to 224 meters between December 2013 and January 2014 in multiple move events. This study contradicted earlier hypotheses of winds or thick ice floating rocks off the surface. Instead, rocks move when large ice sheets just a few millimeters thick start to melt during periods of light wind. These thin floating ice panels push rocks up to five meters per minute.

Scripps paleo-oceanographer Richard Norris describes the mystery of sliding rocks in Death Valley.

Mystery Solved: The sliding stones of Death Valley

Could the same theory that solved the mystery of the sliding rocks of Death Valley explain the moving stones at Mars “Homeplate” Gusev crater on 10 March 2009?

There is clearly a trail visible. So the next thing to find out is, could there have been a small stream of water flowing or thin floating ice panels pushing the rocks up? This could explain the movements of the rocks on the trail path and leaving the other stones unmoved.

Let’s look into that …

The rover had driven 36 centimeters downhill earlier on Sol 1854, but had not been able to get free of ruts in soft material that had become an obstacle to getting around the northeastern corner of the low plateau called “Home Plate.”
The Sol 1854 drive, following two others in the preceding four sols that also achieved little progress in the soft ground, prompted the rover team to switch to a plan of getting around Home Plate counterclockwise, instead of clockwise. The drive direction in subsequent sols was westward past the northern edge of Home Plate.
This view is presented as a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction.

Water and ice on Mars

Destination: Gusev Crater
Google Scholar search: Water on Mars
Google scholar search: Ice panels Gusev Crater


Vast deposits of water appear to be trapped within the ice caps at the north and south poles of the planet Mars. Each summer, as temperatures increase, the caps shrink slightly as their contents skip straight from solid to gas form, but in the winter, cooler temperatures cause them to grow to latitudes as low as 45 degrees, or halfway to the equator. The caps are an average of 2 miles (3 kilometers) thick and, if completely melted, could cover the Martian surface with about 18 feet (5.6 meters) of water.

Scientists say more water may be frozen just beneath the surface, covered by the dry red dust that blankets the planet. Some high-latitude regions seem to boast patterned ground-shapes that may have formed as permafrost in the soil freezes and thaws over time. The European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft captured images of sheets of ice in the cooler, shadowed bottoms of craters.

These images from the Phoenix Mars Lander show sublimation of ice in the trench informally called

In 2008, Phoenix turned up small chunks of bright material that disappeared after four days, leading scientists to surmise that they were pieces of water ice. The lander went on to detect water vapor in a sample it collected and analyzed, confirming the presence of frozen water on the red planet. [Space.com]

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has found that surface soil on the Red Planet contains about 2 percent water by weight. That means astronaut pioneers could extract roughly 2 pints (1 liter) of water out of every cubic foot (0.03 cubic meters) of Martian dirt they dig up, said study lead author Laurie Leshin, of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y.

On 28 Sept 2015 NASA Confirms Evidence That Liquid Water Flows on Today’s Mars 

New findings from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.

Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on the Red Planet. These darkish streaks appear to ebb and flow over time. They darken and appear to flow down steep slopes during warm seasons, and then fade in cooler seasons. They appear in several locations on Mars when temperatures are above minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 23 Celsius), and disappear at colder times.

The following animation simulates a fly-around look at one of the places on Mars where dark streaks advance down slopes during warm seasons, possibly involving liquid water. This site is within Hale Crater. The streaks are roughly the length of a football field.

Seasons on Mars 

Mars’ Calendar

Time on Mars is easily divided into days based on its rotation rate and years based on its orbit. Sols, or Martian solar days, are only 39 minutes and 35 seconds longer than Earth days, and there are 668 sols (684 Earth days) in a Martian year.

For convenience, sols are divided into a 24-hour clock. Each landed Mars mission keeps track of “Local Solar Time,” or LST, at its landing site, because Local Solar Time relates directly to the position of the Sun in the sky and thus the angle from which camera views are illuminated. The time of day, Local Solar Time, depends upon the lander’s longitude on Mars.

Unlike on Earth, there is no leisurely-orbiting moon to give Mars “months,” and while there have been many imaginative calendars suggested for Mars, none is in common use. The way that scientists mark the time of Mars year is to use solar longitude, abbreviated Ls (read “ell sub ess”). Ls is 0° at the vernal equinox (beginning of northern spring), 90° at summer solstice, 180° at autumnal equinox, and 270° at winter solstice.

On Earth, spring, summer, autumn, and winter are all similar in length, because Earth’s orbit is nearly circular, so it moves at nearly constant speed around the Sun. By contrast, Mars’ elliptical orbit makes its distance from the Sun change with time, and also makes it speed up and slow down in its orbit. Mars is at aphelion (its greatest distance from the Sun, 249 million kilometers, where it moves most slowly) at Ls = 70°, near the northern summer solstice, and at perihelion (least distance from the Sun, 207 million kilometers, where it moves fastest) at Ls = 250°, near the southern summer solstice. The Mars dust storm season begins just after perihelion at around Ls = 260°.

The coincidence of aphelion with northern summer solstice means that the climate in the northern hemisphere is more temperate than in the southern hemisphere.  In the south, summers are hot and quick, winters long and cold.

Ls marks the passage of time within a Mars year.  To count up the passage of time from one Mars year to the next, Mars scientists have settled upon the following convention:

For the purpose of this comparison, we use the solar longitude range 0°-360° to define a Mars year and adopt April 11, 1955 (Ls=0°) as the beginning of year 1. In this arbitrary convention, the Mariner 9, Viking, Phobos, and Pathfinder missions occurred in years 9-10, 12-15, 19-20, and 23, respectively. By comparison, the 1992-1999 [Earth-based] millimeter observations extend over years 21-24, and the 1997-1999 [Mars Global Surveyor] TES observations extend over years 23 and 24. Source

About the rocks  

Adirondack_square (Spirit)

An approximate true-color view of Adirondack rock, taken by Spirit’s pancam.

Gusev crater lies at the outlet of one of the largest valley networks on Mars, Ma’adim Vallis (deriving its name from the Arabic name for the Red Planet). The valley is about 900 km in length.

The rocks on the plains of Gusev are a type of basalt.  They are fine-grained with irregular holes (geologists would say they have vesicles and vugs)

The rocks we are looking at in the area of interest seem to be Adirondack rocks, as shown in the picture left. (Except for the moving rock, we’ll get into that later).

The microscopic images that Spirit has returned indicate that Adirondack is a hard, crystalline rock. The large and small peaks in Adirondack’s electromagnetic spectrum reveal that the minerals in the rock include olivine, pyroxene and magnetite – which is a common composition in volcanic basalt rocks on Earth.

List of rocks on Mars

Analysis shows that the rocks have been slightly altered by tiny amounts of water. Outside coatings and cracks inside the rocks suggest water deposited minerals, maybe bromine compounds. All the rocks contain a fine coating of dust and one or more harder rinds of material. One type can be brushed off, while another needed to be ground off by the Rock Abrasion Tool (RAT)

Magnetism

The dust in Gusev Crater is the same as dust all around the planet. All the dust was found to be magnetic. Moreover, Spirit found the magnetism was caused by the mineral magnetite, especially magnetite that contained the element titanium. One magnet was able to completely divert all dust hence all Martian dust is thought to be magnetic. The spectra of the dust was similar to spectra of bright, low thermal inertia regions like Tharsis and Arabia that have been detected by orbiting satellites. A thin layer of dust, maybe less than one millimeter thick covers all surfaces. Something in it contains a small amount of chemically bound water.


What we know so far: Fact sheet

  • The sols were taken on March 10 2009
  • The drive direction in subsequent sols was westward past the northern edge of Gusev crater’s “Home Plate”.
  • There is ice found at the Gusev CraterHome Plate” region at Mars which when temperatures are above minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 23 Celsius) becomes liquid water.
  • There appears to be seasonal ebb and flow at the Gusev CraterHome Plate” region at Mars.
  • Spirit was about to get ready for a Martian wintertime.
  • The seasonal timetable for the Sols 1833,1836 and 1843 on 10 March 2009 is between Autumnal equinox (Ls = 180°) Dec 25 2008  (in Martian year 29) and the Winter solstice (Ls = 270°) May 21 2009 (in Martian year 29)
  • The Adirondack stones contain the mineral magnetite. (on Earth magnetite is the most magnetic of all the naturally occurring minerals)
  • The dust in Gusev Crater is the same as dust all around the planet. All the dust was found to be magnetic.
