Summary of Argyre Planitia region

Here are some overview renderings of Argyre Planitia and surrounding areas in the southern hemisphere of Mars.

I have added a lat/long graticule using the Natural Earth graticule shapefiles, setting QGIS to tell them they are in Mars 2000 lat/long.

Argyre region, with MOC image mosaic overlaid by MOLA topography.

I do not present anything like a comprehensive detailing of the glacier-like forms in this region, but here are a couple of interesting areas.

Baltisk Crater (55°W, 42°S)

HRSC nadir image in tile h0416. The HiRISE image at the left is PSP_007706_1375.

With the classifier results.


Nereidum Montes area (43°W, 37-38°S)


In HRSC tile h2625, two Souness GLFs on the rim of crater which also shows various channels.

Classifier results.
A little to the south of the previous image, several further Souness GLFs are found. This area contains a HiRISE anaglyph and DTM. The DTM coverage is outlined in yellow.

Classifier results.
HiRISE anaglyph ESP_013850_1415 just to the east of Souness 757.
