Huge Flood On Mars

March 8, 2013 by  

Huge Flood On Mars, Mars clearly had a watery history, with strong evidence of flowing streams and even some indications that an ocean was present in the distant past. The fate of Mars’ water isn’t understood, but there’s evidence that some of it may have gone underground and is currently circulating in the bedrock of the red planet.

A study being released by Science finds further evidence that some of Mars’ underground waters have burst to the surface violently. Using radar imaging, a team of scientists has tracked a series of channels buried under more recent features and has followed them back toward the source. The imaging showed that the main channel was about 40 kilometers wide and at least 70 meters deep. That’s roughly the same size as the features carved by the largest well-characterized floods on Earth.
