Abstract: [1] This study aims at quantifying the spatial distribution of cones within rootless cone groups (RCGs). Our data set consists of (1) seven Icelandic RCGs (identified through field investigations), (2) seven candidate RCGs on Mars (identified through Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) and Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) images), and (3) four groups of impact craters on Mars (also identified through MOC and THEMIS images) to determine if they can be remotely distinguished from the RCGs purely on the basis of t…
