Based on the counts, however, the valley is between 2 million and 30 million years old. If true, that makes it the youngest outflow channel on Mars.

Estimates of the volume range from 10,000 to 10 million cubic meters per second. For comparison, the Mississippi River's flow averages 17,000 cubic meters per second.

Athabasca Valles and Cerberus Fossae are one of my interesting places on Mars. I'm searching for images of this rootless cinder cones in the valley.

I think there were some good MGS images of them. It's a fascinating locale all round!
