Mars channels     Image based on the Mars Global Surveyor/Mars Orbital Laser Altimeter data. No, this is not the huge Valle Marineris (Mariner Valley), but rather a smaller set of valleys to the north, made up of Kasei Valles, Lunae Mensa, Sacra Mensa, and Nilokeras Fossa, yet still over 1000 kilometers long. The usual explanattion for the formation of these channels has been by water flow, though some think that fast-moving, low-viscosity lava flow may have been responsible.
