Title: Small Thermodynamic Niches for Water Ice in the Inner Solar System
Abstract: The predominant reason that water ice deposits can be found at otherwise unexpected locations is topography. Small topographies are capable of the most extreme thermal microenvironments. We have identified cold air lakes in cinder cone craters on Maunakea, without those permafrost would not exist. I will also discuss how small shadows in the lunar polar regions can be used to determine the origin of lunar water.
