    Martian water most likely flowed as slurries of mud rather than trickling streams, according to a recent NASA report.

    The report, which compared signs of recent water activity in gullies on Mars with similar deposits on Earth, has implications for searching for evidence of water on the red planet. It could also indicate whether Mars has had liquid water within the last decade.

    In 2004 and 2005, images taken by NASA's Mars Global Surveyor showed evidence of what looked like fresh flows of liquid; light-toned patches on the crater walls in the Terra Sirenum and the Centauri Montes regions of southern Mars.

    The features had not been seen in previous photos of the region taken in 2001.
