Introduction: Populations of impact craters are widely used in planetary science to study surface ages and the nature of resurfacing. Apparent surface age depends on scale; at smaller scales natural surfaces tend to be younger. High resolution imaging of Mars has revealed that at the scales of decameters and smaller, surprisingly many different terrains are devoid of small craters and hence are extremely young [1]. HiRISE images [2] with their high resolution and dynamic range allow… CONTINUE READING
