Crater in Inner Channel of Zarqa Valles

A Crater in the Inner Channel of Zarqa Valles
We target here a crater of diameter close to 1 kilometer that impacted in an inner channel within a valley with potential sedimentary deposits, in the region of Libya Montes. High resolution observation of this crater will provide access to the stratigraphy of these deposits and give clues about deposition/erosion in this valley.
