Upon their discovery in 2000, Martian gullies were hailed as the first proof of recent (i.e. less than a few million years) flowing liquid water on the surface of a dry desert planet. Many processes have been proposed to have formed Martian gullies, ranging from liquid-water seepage from aquifers, melting of snow, ice and frost, to dry granular flows, potentially lubricated by CO2. Terrestrial analogues have played a pivotal role in the conception and validation of gully-formation mechanisms. Comparison with the terrestrial landscape argues for gully formation by liquid-water debris flows originating from surface melting. However, limited...
