Computer Modeling of Multi-Phase Water Under Martian Conditions

image: The SwRI-developed MarsFlo® software is the first simulation tool that incorporates a range of physical processes and conditions of the past and present Martian subsurface. It is used to investigate the evolution of the hydrologic system and long-term stability of water in the near-surface of Mars.
