About this image

The floor of this crater displays interesting textures and it appears to have been flooded by some type of material. It is unclear if this material was fluvially emplaced mud (hyper- concentrated flows) or lava. However, there are no volcanic constructs in the immediate region and the fact that the crater rim was breached by Labou Vallis to the east (see regional view in image context) suggests that this material may indeed be mudflows.
