Abstract

Thaumasia region on Mars is characterized by a complex geological history, including various phases of fluvial, volcanic and tectonic activity [1]. Among the surface features visible on Thaumasia mountain range, a series of periglacial or glaciallooking landforms can be distinguished. We used HRSC nadir scenes, which are covering almost completely Thaumasia (Fig. 1), complemented by THEMIS and MOC NA data to investigate the glacier and rock glacier-like morphologies in the area. The occurrence of glaciers or rock glaciers on Mars has been investigated [e.g. 2] during last decades, mostly observing large-scale features [3]. Several glacial or periglacial features have been identified in recent years thanks to higher resolution data [e.g. 4,5].
