Evidence from HRSC Mars Express for a Frozen Sea Close to Mars Equator [#1741].
"We present evidence for a presently-existing frozen sea, with surface pack-ice, at 5N, 150E, age ca. 5 million years. It measures ca. 800 900 km and averages ca. 45 m deep. It has probably been protected from complete sublimation by ash and a sublimation lag of exposed sediment."

Hi Bob (Just getting used to posting here)

Interesting paper. I think this must be one of the areas that Marsis should investigate soon after its deployment. Confirmation of extant water ice should be a priority.
