Structural Analysis of Alba Patera, Mars: From deep-seated to shallow events

B. Cailleau, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel

This 93-page PDF features a dissertation that focuses on the structural evolution of Alba Patera through an examination of the progressive changes from radial to concentric faulting. The second part of the dissertation examines the absence of a bulge, moat and concentric grabens surrounding the volcano, concluding that subsurface processes in the mantle may have counteracted subsidence forces.
