Researchers at the University of Arkansas Center for Space and Planetary Sciences have received more than $1 million from NASA to study Venus, Mars and one of Saturn's moons.
The three grants focus on the study of surface liquids and volatile compounds on the planets. They include a $434,000 cooperative grant with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to study the formation of ice islands on Titan, which is Saturn's largest moon.
Researchers also received a $326,000 grant to study radar anomalies on the surface of Venus and a $291,000 grant to analyze relative humidity data from parts of Mars.
