Huge dust towers, in march, was carried out as part of the global storms, it could play a unique role on the planet, according to NASA.

Although dust storms are common on the Red Planet, they may be sometimes tricky enough to fight back — and that’s what happened last year, when a heavy storm stopped, and Opportunity rover missions.

Two recent publications highlight dust-towers, which are concentrated in clouds of dust, which is located at the top of the atmosphere, which is comparable to the storm clouds on the Ground.

According to NASA, dust trapped water vapor that can drive a ride to outer space, where solar radiation breaks up their molecules. This may help explain how Mars’ water disappeared billions of years.

“Normally, it would fall off in a day or so,” the paper’s lead author, Nicholas Heavens of Hampton University in Hampton, Va., said in a statement. “In the global storm, the dust, the towers have been extended for a week.”

Scientists are not sure what is the root cause of the global dust storms, and they have only done so to less than a dozen at this point.

Global dust storms are really unusual,” Mars Climate Sounder scientist David Kass of JPL, said in a statement. “We really don’t have anything like this on Earth, where the planet for a few months.”
