Mars radar mapping: Strong depolarized echoes from the Elysium/Amazonis outflow channel complexA new technique was used to make radar maps of Mars with the Arecibo radiotelescope. The observations were made during the 1990 opposition (close approach) of Mars. Among the most interesting of the preliminary results is the discovery of strong depolarized echoes from the enormous Elysium/Amazonis outflow channel complex. These strong echoes may represent rough-surface scattering off the youngest lava flows on Mars.
