Topography based surface analysis and morphology correlation for the northern hemisphere of Mars – The topographic analysis of the Martian surface might help to understand basic geomorphological connections and improve our understanding in the surface features of the Earth too. In this work we correlated the statistical topographic parameters and the remote sensed image based appearance of various locations along a meridional stripe at the northern hemisphere of Mars. The topographic location of nearly horizontal plains suggests that the erosion and re-deposition was not effective enough to transport the sediments at the topographic lowerst point at 50 km distance scale. Great difference could be identified between the topographic height distribution pattern of different analyzed terrains, suggesting different variability and complexity in the range in surface feature types there. Terrains resembling the pediment-like structures also could be at the analyzed terrains on Mars, but their firm identification requires more detailed analysis. The statistical based topography analysis could give useful input for detailed surface research in geomorphology.
