Dear LFM folks--

I have been swamped and in and out of town a lot this month,
but I wanted to weigh in on this "Sand on Mars" discussion,
since it is a topic most near and dear to my heart.

What I wanted to do was suggest that if you are really intrigued
about this topic, a nice starting point is an article that
appeared in ASTRONOMY magazine about four years ago (which is 
still fairly current except for the Pathfinder results).

You should be able to locate this in school and/or public
libraries, or perhaps even in thrift stores...

"The Sands of Mars," by Ken Edgett, Paul Geissler, and Ken Herkenhoff,
	ASTRONOMY, v. 21, no. 6, pp. 26-35, June 1993.

Take care
