Comparing Run-Out Efficiency of Fluidized Ejecta on Mars with Terrestrial and Martian Mass MovementsWe broadly characterize the rheology of fluidized ejecta on Mars as it flows during its final stages of emplacement by using the concept of run-out efficiency. Run-out efficiency for ejecta can be obtained through an energy balance between the kinetic energy of the excavated ejecta, and the total work lost during its deposition. Such an efficiency is directly comparable to run-out efficiency (i.e., L/H analyzes where L is the run-out distance and H is onset height) of terrestrial and extraterrestrial mass movements. Determination of the L/H ratio is commonly used in terrestrial geology to broadly determine the type and rheology of mass movements
