Abstract: Recurring Slope Lineae (RSL), are dark markings found on slopes with a steepness of 25°- 45°. Their width is between 0.5-5 m but they can become hundreds of meters long. They grow incrementally during warm seasons; fade during cold seasons and appear again the following Mars year. They occur mainly in the equatorial and southern mid-latitudes and appear less abundant in the northern hemisphere. After the first confirmed observations of RSL, research about them accelerated quickly. This is m... more
