Evidence for a Thick Mantle of Volatile-rich Materials in the Utopia Basin, Mars, Based on Crater Depth/diameter Measurements:


Introduction: This study focuses on the depth/diameter (d/D) relationships of impact craters within Utopia Basin (25°N-70°N, 88°W-150°W), Mars. In order to search for spatial variations in the study area, d/D values for a total of 1,430 craters have been grouped by sub-regions based upon their similar d/D characteristics. This has revealed a significant… (More)
