Precision Topography of Pluvial Features in Western Nevada as Analogs for Possible Pluvial Landforms on Mars

Abstract

Introduction: The possible presence of confined bodies of standing water on early Mars has been postulated for many years, both as large oceans [e.g., 1-5] and as lakes associated with impact crater or intercrater basins [e.g., 6-10].
