[1] Global mapping of intermediate-size (100–200 m) polygonal troughs occurring mainly in impact crater floors was carried out using high-resolution images from spacecraft currently orbiting Mars. Earlier works have classified these polygonal networks as periglacial features on account of their apparent occurrence at higher latitudes and morphological similarities to thermal contraction polygons (TCPs). Crater floor polygons (CFPs) have diameters ranging from 15 to 350 m. They morphologically… CONTINUE READING
