Abstract

Channels, valleys, and related features of aqueous origin on Mars are of profound importance in comparative planetology. Martian outflow channels formed by large-scale fluid outflow from subsurface sources. Elements of cataclysmic flooding, debris and ice flowage, as modified by volcanism and wind action, seem best to explain observed morphologies. Martian valley networks show their greatest similarity to terrestrial networks formed by sapping as water emanated from seeps and springs. -from Authors
