An ancient inner lake in Maadim VallisThe survey of Ma'adim Vallis and crater Gusev area by the new topographic Aeolis southeast map allows to document the hydrodynamics processes which occurred in the valley. The inner Ma'adim Vallis hypsometric and volume deposits analyses point out that Gusev impact was subsequent to the first incision of Ma'adim Vallis in the craterized upland. The study of the deposit distributions as revealed by the topography leads to reconstruct the chronology of three major events in the Aeolis Region : Ma'adim incision, Gusev impact, and Apollinaris Patera/flow interactions.
