Investigations of the Bagnold Dune Field, Gale crater
The Bagnold Dune Field, Gale crater, is a large and active Martian sand deposit. This special issue welcomes publications studying the dunes, utilizing orbital data and/or the full suite of MSL instruments from Curiosity's winter 2015/2016 in situ investigation. Related papers on dunes and sands on Mars that contextualize the Bagnold dune field are also welcome.
This special issue is dedicated to Nathan Bridges, who co-organized the issue and passed away before it was completed.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the GEMS Web site for JGR Planets.
