We describe an expert system for collection and express analysis of ground-based observations of Mars. Using photoelectric and polarimetric data and images of Mars, the system defines the presence of dust in the planet's atmosphere, the location and area of dust clouds, forecasts their evolution. The expert system is intended for the ground-based tracking of the «Mars-96» spacecraft and for creating a data bank on Mars.
