Outlet Channel from Crater

Outlet Channel from Crater

Even Craters Need an Outlet
This outlet channel from the sharp-rimmed crater to the east of this location is itself modified by subtle side channels. Do these side channels postdate a crater to the northwest? A stereo pair will help to constrain eroded volume and determine timing, which in turn would constrain any runoff production mechanism for their formation.
