Spillover lake theory illustrated “The plains west of Perseverance (left side in both images) correspond to a shallow embayment, but not a closed depression,” said Parker as he presented his lake spillover theory at LPSC. “If you flood the terrain to an elevation of -1455.15 meters, you get a connection between the interior and the exterior of the crater right at the proposed notch, but the plains are open to the west.Tilting the topography between .5 and .8 degrees to the east, however, produces a 2-meter deep closed depression,” he said. With issues to resolve and more ‘road’ to put in the rear view mirror, Parker is hoping for “more glorious detail,” as Opportunity roves on. NASA / JPL-Caltech / University of Arizona / T. Parker
