... The ~31.7-km-diameter Betio crater (23.15°S, 281.38°E), located within the Hesperian-aged Ridged Plains material in Thaumasia Planum, Mars, contains a well-preserved asymmetrical central floor pit (~10.8 km NW-SE and ~8.8 km NE-SW in diameter) covering an area of ~67 km 2 that exposes discrete...

... Noctis Labyrinthus and Syria Planum. The Ius-Melas-Coprates trough zone also terminates the north-striking Thaumasia thrust in the south and may have offset the thrust to the north for 150–160 km in a left-lateral sense (see text for detail). Note that Melas Chasma is much wider and its southern rim...

... topographic inversion tests in Solis Planum predict that the subjacent thrusts in fact break the surface. This result means that some thrust-related folds that have backthrusts may have surface-breaking thrusts that crosscut shallow volatile reservoirs (such as in Solis and Thaumasia Plana) and that seeps may...

Note that the area between the Thaumasia Plateau and the Argyre impact structure is much higher that the transitional zone, which was probably created by the oblique (northwestward) Argyre impact.
