A new geologic map of the asteroid Vesta has been published by Arizona State University planetary scientist David Williams and his colleagues. It's online in the December special issue of the journal Icarus on The Geology of Vesta.They propose a chronostratigraphic scheme and geologic timescale for Vesta with four periods based on major impact events. The conclude that the proposed vestan geologic timescale is comparable to those developed for other airless terrestrial planets, and
I was not able to get a good, clear photo of the lahar deposits around the river at this stop, but this is the best of them. In the little slice of whitewater right near the center of the shot, you can see some of the rounded boulders that characterize much of the upper stretch of this river. And though it's over exposed, you can see more of the poorly sorted and essentially un-bedded deposits on the far bank. Near the top, it looks as if we're seeing a talus pile from a still higher (though
