The amount of hydrogen detected indicates 20 to 50 per cent ice by mass in the lower layer beneath the topmost surface. The ice-rich layer is about 60 cm beneath the surface at latitude 60◦ S, and approaches 30cm of the surface at latitude 75◦ S. The inventory of the total amount of water that may have existed at the surface of Mars is difficult to estimate and varies from a total water depth of some metres to several hundred metres. It is generally considered that liquid water has been restricted to the very early stages of Martian history (see Bribing’s Chap.
