Mars flood photo gallery

Today, There is a wealth of evidence that clearly shows Mars was mysteriously flooded with flowing liquid water in its past.

Hundreds of photos reveal extensive areas across the planet's surface eroded with channel markings. Science has been forced to admit Floods on Mars did indeed take place.

The following photo gallery displays a range of amazing erosion formations on Mars. Click on the headings to jump down to that thumbnail section. Click on the thumbnail images to see larger versions in more detail.

Outflow Channels & Chaotic Terrain

Carved jumbled blocks of chaotic terrain mark actual locations where the floods on Mars burst through the surface. Flowing water then created the erosion formations only recently discovered. Click the thumbnails to see larger photos.

Erosion Gaps & Streamlined Features

Fast flowing water carved pathways through rocky outcrops, while in other areas, the surface was smoothed forming huge teardrop shapes around craters.

Drainage Networks & Fretted Tributaries

Complex fretted tributaries and drainage patterns are found where water moved downhill over large open areas. These runoff plains are seen to feed into larger rivers.

Ground Water Seepage & Gullies

In many places ground water has seeped to the surface. Evidence of this is prominent in the walls of craters. Here gullies and mini creeks have formed caused as surfacing water flowed downhill.

Ponding Shorelines & Lake Beds

Here, evidence shows how water accumulated to form ponds and lakes on Mars. Shoreline patterns are an indication of shallowing water, reduced in depth as it evaporated into the low pressure Martian Atmosphere.

Petal Ejecta & Splosh Craters

Here, evidence suggests these impacts occurred at a time when water was abundant on the surface. Ejected debris formations have the definite appearance of being in a semi fluid state.

Mars once had a great flood, but how?

The discovery and nature of extensive flooding erosion across Mars presents scientists with a decidedly difficult problem. Water erosion formations are noticeably clean cut. Considering the dusty windswept environment on Mars, scientists have been forced to conclude they are recent developments, rather than the result of events in the planet's distant past. In numerous regions, formations appear so fresh that it is now seriously considered water may still be present, seeping from the surface and continuing the erosion process over the Martian landscape. If this proves to be correct, just how liquid water is able to exist in the low pressure atmosphere of Mars remains a major stumbling block for all who investigate.

New and critical information in The Land of No Horizon helps shed light on this baffling mystery. Many may be surprised by the conclusions drawn.
