Default Surface gravity vs Surface acceleration ?



I'm just looking at some facts of mars from a NASA webpage,
which basically says;
Mars Earth Ratio
Surface gravity (m/s2) 3.71 9.80 0.379
Surface acceleration (m/s2) 3.69 9.78 0.377

Could someone explain these 2 terms for me ?

Without a context it is difficult to tell exactly what they were talking
about.

Could you possibly post the NASA link and let us see for ourselves?

"Surface acceleration" includes the effects of rotation;
"surface gravity" does not.
