  • The atmospheric pressure measured at the two Viking sites varied over a Martian year between 7 and 10 millibars 1 bar is Earth sea-level atmospheric pressure, or 14.7 psi; 10 millibar, or mbar, is 1 percent Earth sea-level atmospheric pressure, with a year-round average of about 8 mbar observed at the higher altitude Viking 1 landing site on Chryse Planitia.

    The Case for Mars

  • However, if the polar temperature should rise to a point where the vapor pressure is much greater than that which can be produced by the mass in the cap reservoir between 50 and 100 mbar then the cap will disappear and the atmosphere will be regulated by the regolith reservoir.
