Abstract

P44A-04. [15] Scott and Tanaka (1986) U.S. Geological Survey, I-1802-A. [16] Mustard et al. (2001) Nature, 412, 411-414. [17] Head et al. (2003) Nature, 426, 797-802. Figure 2. (left) HRSC context image showing a dark structure centered at 73°E, 29.3°N. (right) OMEGA map of the 1.9 μm band depth. Figure 1. Map of the hydrated mineral-bearing deposits as seen by OMEGA (over MOLA altimetry). A large number of the deposits (in red and orange) are phyllosilicates. Sulphate-bearing deposits are plotted in yellow. The well-studied and extended regions (Terra Meridiani, Nili Fossae, Mawrth Vallis, Aram Chaos, Valles Marineris) are not shown here. Valles Marineris Aram
