Contextualizing lobate debris aprons and glacier-like forms on Mars with debris-covered glaciers on Earth
Debris-covered glaciers from around the world offer distinct environmental, climatic, and historical conditions from which to study the effects of debris on glacier-ice evolution. A rich literature
Edifice of Fluvial Terrace Flights, Stacks and Rows
The paper presents a review of the architecture and structures of river deposits in valleys. A new terminology for some features is included in this review. It presents principles of the fluvial
Morphology of Dome- and Tepee-Like Landforms Generated by Expansive Hydration of Weathering Anhydrite: A Case Study at Dingwall, Nova Scotia, Canada
The gypsum-anhydrite rocks in the abandoned quarry at Dingwall (Nova Scotia, Canada) are subjected to physical and chemical weathering, including hydration of the anhydrite, i.e., its transformation
Introduction: Vavilov (0.8 S° 137.9 W°) is a prominent lunar impact crater with the average diameter of 99 km located on the far side of the moon [1]. It lies to the west of the walled plain
Distribution of Dune Landform on Mars
Dune landforms are widely distributed on Mars and contain abundant information about the Martian atmosphere and sedimentary environment. At present, the understanding of Martian dunes and their
Atmospheric, Geomorphological, and Compositional Analysis of Martian Asimov and Hale Craters: Implications for Recurring Slope Lineae
Recurring slope lineae (RSL) are small, dark, seasonal albedo features lengthening down “warm” Martian steep slopes. Their origin has been attributed to both liquid and dry processes, hence
Sand spikes pinpoint powerful palaeoseismicity
This work interprets sand spikes as a new type of seismite and a promising tool to identify strong impact-induced or tectonic palaeo-earthquakes and their source regions in the geologic record.
Interactions between boulders and aeolian ridges on Mars
Here we present new observations of two different interactions between aeolian ridges and boulder fields on Mars that provide insight into past wind conditions. First, an analysis of ridge and
Networked configurations as an emergent property of transverse aeolian ridges on Mars
Transverse aeolian ridges – enigmatic Martian features without a proven terrestrial analog – are increasingly important to our understanding of Martian surface processes. However, it is not well
