... et al., 2000 ), and the yellow line marks the boundary of the Vastitas Borealis Formation ( Tanaka et al., 2003 ). The Vastitas Borealis Formation is generally thought to be comprised of sediments derived from erosion of highland rocks, some of which were deposited by water in channels that empty...

... processes affecting the dynamic of the channels. MOLA imagery clearly shows collapsed walls in the chasmas, suggesting that the failed material was incorporated into the flow, generating a mixture of water and sediments that was transported downslope. The late Hesperian Vastitas Borealis Formation...

... Borealis,” at least for geologically short episodes, has been found to be generally consistent with considerable geomophological evidence. The distinctive water-laid sedimentary deposits that cover parts of the northern plains, known as the Vastitas Borealis Formation, afford the most convincing evidence...

... a significant contribution from distinctive igneous rocks. The Vastitas Borealis Formation, composing most of province 6, appears to be composed of a thin layer of sediment overlying volcanic plains ( Head et al., 2002 ). The sediments almost certainly came from the highlands, namely provinces 2 and 4...

..., the Martian polar caps are broad domes composed predominantly of layers of water ice ( Grima et al., 2009 ) that extend 3–4 km above their surrounding terrains. Those surroundings consist of a broad, low-lying plain (Vastitas Borealis) in the north and heavily cratered highlands in the south. Both domes...
