Channel Heads in Northern Arsia Chasmata

Channel Heads in Northern Arsia Chasmata
A shallow, broad channel connects two collapse features at the top of the Arsia Chasmata. Unlike nearby channels and sinuous collapse features, this channel does not have sharp, well-defined sides. If this is a volcanic flow, its morphology is distinct from other volcanic flows; if it is an aqueous flow, it has a very high elevation; if it is a tectonic feature, it is lacking scarps. This observation will help interpret the channel-forming process.
