AbstractFor my Undergraduate Honors Thesis at the University of Arizona, I have investigated the origin of a chain of pit craters found on central Amazonis Planitia on Mars. With the guidance of Dr. Christopher W. Hamilton, I used Context Camera (CTX) and High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) data from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) to correlate the formation of the pit craters in question to strike-slip faulting in the greater area. Additionally, channel features connecting to the pit craters were investigated using the creation of a Digital Terrain Model (DTM), to conclude their geologic relationship.
