Slope Failures in Tempe Terra

Slope Failures in Tempe Terra

Slope Failures in Tempe Terra
Slope failures in the form of faulted blocks suggest modification of materials within this ancient basin, possibly related to recent glaciation. Studying the possible triggers and dynamics of the slope failures including 3D analysis of the geometry of the slope failures will aid in understanding the history of sedimentary, glacial, tectonic and fluvial processes in the basin.
