[1] Visible and buried impact basins, seen as “Quasi-Circular Depressions” (QCDs) in MOLA data, provide important new constraints on the age of the Martian lowlands. The buried lowlands are no younger than Early Noachian, at least as old as the oldest exposed (visible) surface units in the highlands. A model absolute age for these buried lowlands is 4.04–4.11 GY (or earlier) but similar model ages for the largest lowland basins are older yet, 4.08–4.18 GY. The lowland crust both formed and… CONTINUE READING
