Using two shots at a distance of one day made by the Mars Descent Imager (MARDI), NASA has created this animated gif that depicts the sand shifted by the wind, when there was no sandstorm. This animation depicts an area of about one meter and as you can see the displacements of the ripples of sand come to several centimeters.
Compare this animation with the following animations taken during the current dust storm: https://facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/videos/1785368298213022/ https://facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/videos/1783334835083035/
What do you think?
Do you really believe that wind and dust are the real drivers of this ongoing global storm?
