Water is considered the essential element in not only just the origin of life but also in emerging and evolution. Liquid water as we know is abundant on Earth but on Mars, there’s no trace of liquid water on the surface due to its environmental and geological
conditions. But there’s high chance that the water is trapped underground looking at the basic features on Mars like Recurring Slope Linea. This report will provide the basic understanding of Martian history, present conditions prevailing on Mars and briefs on why water is considered important and gives a small introduction to the aquifers on Earth and its types. This report recommends which technique is best suited for a mission with an orbiter and/or with a lander or a rover to detect and characterize subsurface aquifers on Mars.
