Abstract

Zumba is a∼ 2.9 km diameter rayed crater on Mars located on extensive lava plains in Daedalia Planum to the southwest of Arsia Mons. It is a well-preserved young crater with large ejecta rays that extend for hundreds of kilometers from the impact site. The rays are thermally distinct from the background lava flows in THEMIS daytime and nighttime thermal infrared data, a unique characteristic among Martian rayed craters. Concentrated within the rays are solitary or dense clusters of secondary craters with associated diffuse ...
