I'm doing an on-line course throught NASA, and I am supposed to ask you one of 
three questions I have about Mars. This question is the one I am most intersted 
in and would really love to learn the answer. I know there is very little 
atmospheric pressure on the surface, and that is usually the cause of winds of 
winds on Earth. However, I am at a loss for how the fierce winds scouring the 
Martian surface form. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
