Re: What Biome's are needed on Mars

Thanks for the article as it will take a bit to digest but it will help in the forward thinking about what we will need to not use energy to keep man alive.

For SpaceNut re #27

Thanks for the link to that (to me quite) interesting report on the beneficial effects of solar farm deployment.

It sure does imply good things for Earth locations were the property owners allow plants and animals to flourish.

This is the Life support systems category, and your post certainly does seem to support the topic.

The connection to Mars seems a bit tenuous right now, but perhaps there is a connection.

For SpaceNut re #27

This was a duplicate but I'm leaving it to avoid creating a pothole. The Potholes run is coming up shortly.

Experts discover game-changing benefit of installing solar panels at aquaculture farms: 'A win-win solution'

Installing solar panels over fish farms can help boost seafood harvests by 50%

The study looked at an aquaculture site near the mouth of the Yellow River in China's Shandong Province. In 2021, solar panels were installed several meters above the water to generate clean energy. The results have been astonishing.

The solar installation now generates 260 gigawatt-hours of clean electricity per year — enough to power 113,000 homes. At the same time, the shade from the panels keeps the water 3.6 to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit cooler, which has led to 50% higher yields of shrimp and sea cucumbers.
