Valleys in the Martian Libya Montes: Evidence for episodic erosion events

Jaumann, R. and Nass, A. and Tirsch, D. and Reiss, D. and Neukum, G. (2010) Valleys in the Martian Libya Montes: Evidence for episodic erosion events. In: Lunar and Planetary Science XLI, 1533, p. 1629. Lunar and Planetary Institute. 41st Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, 2010-03-01 - 2010-03-05, The Woodlands, TX, USA. ISSN 1540-7845.



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 (Carr and Malin, 2000) such features can be identified in high-resolution imagery (e.g. Malin and Edgett, 2001; Jaumann et al., 2005). However, besides internal features the source regions are an important indicator for the flow processes in Martian valleys because they define the drainage area and thus constrain the amount of available water for eroding the valley network. The three-dimensional highly resolved data of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on the Mars Express Mission (Jaumann et al., 2007) allow the detailed examination of valley network source regions.
