Geologic mapping of Harmakhis and Reull Valles region, Mars: Evidence for multiple resurfacing and drainage eventsNumerous mesas and irregular, channel-cut escarpments south of Harmakhis and Reull Valles suggesting at least two resurfacing events with subsequent periods of erosion are revealed from detailed geologic mapping of three adjacent 1:500,000-scale quadrangles (MTM-40262, -40267, -40272). Also, two distinct episodes of surface water runoff, each from different styles of water release, are evident. Geologic mapping is based on 1:500,000-scale photomosaics of the Harmakhis vallis region, and is an outgrowth of preliminary regional geologic mapping on a 1:2,000,000-scale on the east rim of Hellas Basin.
