Three New Names for Features on Mars and Changes to an Approved Name

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

The names Lipany, Oenotria Plana, and Zarqa Valles have been approved for use on Mars. The name Oenotria Scopulus has been changed to the plural form, Oenotria Scopuli, to accomodate the addition of several scarps to this feature. For more information, see the maps of MC-13 and MC-21 in the Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature.
