Meandering Channels on Western Edge of Acidalia Planitia

Meandering Channels on the Western Edge of Acidalia Planitia
The objective of this observation is to examine meandering valleys within a larger valley. One end of the valleys is connected to an impact crater. Pictures like this one will help us understand how streams flowed in this region. Acidalia Planitia is between the Tharsis volcanic province and Arabia Terra to the north of Valles Marineris.
