the interior lowland plains unit of mars: evidence for a possible mud ocean and induced tectonic deformationWe conclude from MOC and MOLA data that the northern plains of Mars were infilled by a sediment-rich, mud ocean. Evidence for subsidence within the north polar basin and reversed channel-floor gradients are consistent with tectonic deformation due to the sediment load.
