Strain Histories Among Alba and Syria Planum, MarsThe centers work of Anderson et al. (2001) [1] identified two prominent centers in the Tharsis region, Syria Planum and Alba Patera (Stage 2 and Stage 4 respectively). Because of their perceived influence on the geologic and possible paleoclimatic histories of Mars, Mars Orbiter Laser Altimetry (MOLA) along with published stratigraphic and paleotectonic information (including the centers information) were analyzed using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to perform a comparative investigation of their strain histories through time. This investigation highlights their similarities and distinctions, including their topographic and morphologic signatures, deformational extent, and intensities and durations of activity.
