Mars’ Ancient Dynamo and Crustal Remanent Magnetism

In this paper we motivate planning and implementation of magnetometers on aerial platforms such as airplanes, drones and/or long-lived balloons to obtain low-altitude magnetic measurements over kilometers to hundreds of kilometers. The science goal is to determine the nature, origin and age of Mars’ crustal remanent magnetization.
