Martian valley networks have been cited as the best evidence that Mars maintained flow of liquid water across its surface. Although internal structures associated with a fluvial origin within valleys such as inner channels, terraces, slip-off and undercut slopes are extremely rare on Mars [1] such features can be identified in high-resolution imagery [e.g. 2,3]. However, besides internal features the source regions are an important indicator for the flow processes in Martian valleys because… CONTINUE READING
