The Stratigraphy of the Amenthes region, Mars Time limits for the formation of fluvial, volcanic and tectonic landforms



The Stratigraphy of the Amenthes region, Mars Time limits for the formation of fluvial, volcanic and tectonic landforms



Icarus 215(1): 128-152



We present results of our morphologic and stratigraphic investigations in the Amenthes region for which our observations suggest a complex spatial and temporal interrelation between volcanic and possibly water-related processes. We have produced a series of self-consistent geological maps and a stratigraphic correlation chart that show the spatial and temporal distribution of volcanic, fluvial and tectonic processes.The Amenthes region consists of a broad trough-like topographic depression that has served as a path for the supply of materials from Hesperia Planum to Isidis Planitia. It is most likely that Hesperia Planum and, in particular the area north of Hesperia Planum, including. Highlights: Amenthes Planum connects volcanic province of Hesperia Planum with Isidis Planitia. Amenthes Planum served as main path of transportation of fluvial/volcanic materials. Amenthes influenced by spatial/temporal interrelation of fluvial/volcanic processes. Formation of Tinto Vallis consistent with groundwater sapping/volcanic processes. Palos crater outflow channel bears striking evidence for catastrophic flood events. Tinto Vallis and Palos crater outflow channel formed later than dendritic valleys.
