Central pit craters are common on ice-rich bodies, such as Mars, Ganymede, and Callisto. Mars and Ganymede represent the two end members regarding target characteristics (mixed ice and soil for Mars vs. almost pure ice for Ganymede). Comparisons of central pit craters on these two bodies can provide insights into the environmental conditions under which these craters form and provide constraints on the proposed formation models. This analysis includes 1604 central pit craters on Mars and 471 central pit craters on Ganymede. Martian central pit craters are divided into floor pits and summit pits, whereas all central pit craters on...
