Hi Paul,

Here's two 'minuses' and one 'plus' for you.

i) Article says the ponds "occupy the lowest parts of the
terrain" - much like tarns or mountain-side ponds on Earth; ii)
also, that the surface is perfectly smooth and in a plane.
Together, those attributes do not belong to dust or soil or
frozen liquids on a slope. Ever seen a frozen waterfall? It's
not at all flat or smooth.

Although it might not be 'water' as we know it, from the
description - including 'transparency' - it would seem to be a
fluid of some sort, which is liquid in Mars conditions. That
means it could be a Martian 'solvent' - as liquid water is the
solvent for Earth life.
