Regional basement geology of Jezero crater, Mars
The colorful region on this map represents the watershed of the streams that once poured into Jezero crater. There are two inlet streams; each watershed is outlined in a heavy black line. There is a wide variety of different kinds of bedrock, all of which would have contributed sediment to the delta within Jezero. The crater itself is outlined in white at lower right. The crater's outlet stream is to the northeast of Jezero.
