Additional Details
Description: Geologic mapping was compiled on 1:2,000,000-scale photomosaics of six quadrangles based on Viking images obtained during the late 1970’s. The canyons of Valles Marineris were named in honor of the Mariner 9 mission to Mars, which discovered them in 1972. These canyons interconnect to form a 4,000-km-long system, the largest known in the Solar System. The walls of Valles Marineris display the thickest vertical stratigraphic section on Mars, exposing some of the planet’s oldest and deepest crustal rocks.
