Contact in Deuteronilus Mensae

Contact in Deuteronilus Mensae
We’re talking geologic contact here: the objective of observation is to examine the contact between a debris apron and the surrounding surface. Ribbed terrain seems to be forming, possibly from glacial processes. Evidence from the radar on MRO has shown that parts of Deuteronilus Mensae do indeed contain ice.
