Visualizing the degradation of Endeavour

Visualizing the degradation of Endeavour
Visualizing the degradation of Endeavour From her simulations with the landscape evolution model MARSSIM, Hughes was able to conclude that the morphology of Endeavour was likely produced during an initial period of fluvial or water erosion in a semi-arid to arid (dry) environment. This was followed by a drier period of erosion without water that was dominated by lower rates of weathering, diffusion, and mass-wasting, also known as slope movement or mass movement, and finally a period dominated by aeolian erosion and deposition that continues to this day.
