Some of that ice is sticking out above the surface where it's combined with rocks and dust, making the ice a prime target for future lander missions.
"There've been suggestions that, when there's high obliquity, the poles get heated a lot - they're tilted over and pointed more at the sun, and so that redistributes ice toward the midlatitudes", Dundas told Space.com.
Scientists have spotted thinly buried glaciers of water ice on Mars that could one day support a human base on the red planet and help reveal the mysteries of our neighbor's long climate history. The scientists think the deposits are pretty pure water ice - a boon for future exploratory missions.
Francis Coquelin Officially Seals Valencia Move After Nearly a Decade With Arsenal
Coquelin spoke to former Arsenal team-mates Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin and Santi Cazorla about the move. They were very good. "He goes to Valencia because he didn't get enough games with us this season and he had an opportunity".
Eight such geological formations with thick ice hiding very close to the surface have already been found on the Red Planet, and are seen by scientists as a valuable resource for potential human explorers of the faraway planet.
In spite of its dry appearance, about a third of the Red Planet actually holds shallow ground ice. "What we've seen here are cross-sections through the ice that give us a 3-D view with more detail than ever before". The ice-harboring areas sport few craters, suggesting they're quite young, geologically speaking, the researchers said.
Here's how it works on Mars: When the planet is farther from the sun in its orbit, and it snows, that snow remains on the surface and becomes a buildup of ice.

Marvet Britto, a public relations and brand strategist, said the "All the Money" pay disparity doesn't dilute the movement. Adrienne Trier-Bieniek, a qualitative researcher who examines the connection between pop culture and social inequality.
As with many things Martian, the work relies on data from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. They were found at mid-latitudes (roughly the Martian equivalent of Canada or the UK) and occupied poleward-facing slopes. "You don't see a high-tech solution", Byrne added.
'Humans need water wherever they go, and it's very heavy to carry with you, ' said Shane Byrne of the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Tucson, a co-author on today's report.
All of this strongly suggests that the surface-level ice and the large subsurface deposits are connected, the authors say.
"If we were to send humans to live on Mars for a substantial period of time, it would be a fantastic source of water", Matt Balme, a planetary scientist in Britain, said. All a thirsty astronaut would have to do would be to go at the scarp with a hammer and, presto, fresh Martian ice chips.
Harvey Weinstein attacked at Arizona restaurant, TMZ reports
Back in October, TMZ reported that Weinstein flew from Los Angeles to Arizona for treatment in an inpatient program. Weinstein does appear to stumble, in what seems more like confusion rather than the sheer force of the impact.
For the first time, high-resolution images show the three-dimensional structure of massive ice deposits on Mars. We expect the vertical structure of Martian ice-rich deposits to preserve a record of ice deposition and past climate.
