Animation from the Thermal Emission Spectrograph (10 frames per second )

About this video
Duration: 24 seconds

Beginning with clear skies (represented by blue), the storm gathers in size and intensity. This animation represents atmospheric data from the Mars Global Surveyor's Thermal Emission Spectrograph. As the dust clouds grow thicker, they absorb more warmth from the sun and raising the temperature of the atmosphere.
