Our knowledge of Mars has grown enormously over the last decade as a result of the Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey,
Mars Express, and the two Mars Rover missions. This book is a systematic summary of what we have learnt about the
geological evolution of Mars as a result of these missions. It describes the diverse Martian surface features and
summarizes current ideas as to how, when, and under what conditions they formed, and explores how Earth and Mars differ
and why the two planets evolved so differently. The author also discusses possible implications of the geologic history
for the origin and survival of indigenous Martian life. Up-to-date and highly illustrated, this book will be a principal
reference for researchers and graduate students in planetary science. The comprehensive list of references will also
assist readers in pursuing further information on the subject. Colour images can be found at
