Abstract

Many mid-latitude craters on Mars exhibit morphologically distinct post-impact “fill” material on their floors. This material is inferred to be (or have been) ice-rich based on morphological characteristics such as evidence for flow and removal, and their morphologic similarity to ice- rich lobate debris aprons and lineated valley fill. These latter features possess subsurface reflectors with dielectric properties consistent with nearly pure water ice based on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) Shallow Radar (SHARAD) instrument. However, the vast ...
