Kollapskratrar på vulkanen Arsia Mons, Mars och deras relation till regional vulkantektonism (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Pit crater and pit crater chains associated to the volcano Arsia Mons on Mars have been mapped to analyse their spatial pattern and to conclude about their formation. For the mapping, high resolution satellite data gathered during the Mars Express mission were used. The spatial distribution of the pit craters was then compared with typical patterns of magmatic sheet intrusions within volcanoes as they are known from Earth. The results show that the pattern of the mapped pit craters and pit crater chains are in good agreement with these sheet intrusions and are therefore likely related to Martian sheet intrusions.

Abstract [sv]

Kollapskratrar och kraterkedjor relaterade till vulkanen Arsia Mons på Mars har karterats för att analysera deras spatiala mönster och för att komma till slutsatser för deras tillblivelse. Högupplösta satellitbilder tagna av Mars Express-sonden har använts för karteringen. Fördelningen av de karterade kraterkedjorna jämfördes med typiska fördelningar av magmatiska gångbergarter från vulkaner på jorden. Resultaten visar att fördelningen av kollapskratrar och kraterkedjor överensstämmer enligt förväntningarna och påvisar en relation mellan kollapskratrar och magmatiska gångbergarter på Mars.
