Mars may appear to have seasons, but they’re much more complex than you might realize. Due to its thin atmosphere and lack of oceans, its climate changes rapidly between seasons. Mars weather can vary daily and even over short distances. Cloud cover, precipitation and wind speed all play an integral part of its climate system.
Weather radars are widely used worldwide to predict rain, snow, and other forms of precipitation as well as more dangerous events like tornadoes and floods. Modern weather radars are predominantly doppler radars that can detect both the movement of raindroplets and intensity of precipitation, providing data that can help scientists better understand storm structures and
