SOLAR CONTROL OF MARTIAN POLAR CAPS?

Abstract

Regression of polar caps of Mars for the period 1905–1988 shows a highly significant anticorrelation with sunspot numbers. This behaviour is abnormal since the regression exhibited a significant correlation for the period 1862–1912. Combined with such unusual behaviour of Jupiter and Neptune, reported earlier, this may imply a common cause outside the solar system, viz., variation of the density of the local interstellar medium.
