Observed climatic activity pertaining to the evolution of the northern plainsAlthough most of the landforms observed by Viking were probably formed long before the advent of present climatic conditions, it is possible that some modifications occurred more recently and may continue to the present. Also, present climate activity provides another dataset for hypothesizing earlier climatic conditions. Observations of climatic activity in the northern plains from 1905 to 1993 are summarized. Data from Earthbound telescopes and from spacecraft, including the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), were used.
