    An image combining orbital imagery with 3D modeling shows flows that appear in spring and summer on a slope inside Mars' Newton crater.

    As always, don't mistake evidence with proof.

    LOL bump:

    Warmth, flowing water on early Mars were episodic

    New research shows volcanism and greenhouse gas could have warmed the planet sufficiently, but only for tens or hundreds of years at a time.

    Warmth and water flow on ancient Mars were probably episodic, related to brief periods of volcanic activity (~3.7 billion years ago) that spewed tons of greenhouse-inducing sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere.

    Scientists think that sulfuric acid particles would have glommed onto dust particles, which would reduce their ability to reflect the sun's rays. Meanwhile sulfur dioxide gas would produce a modest greenhouse effect - just enough to warm the Martian equatorial region so that water could flow.

    Meh. Wind, moving sand and silt around, and ancient lava flows.
