Abstract: The ∼150 km wide Holden crater lies in an area characterized by high density of valley networks implying conditions conducive to forming of water‐related environments. We undertook geological mapping and a stratigraphic survey in order to probe the evolution of water‐related landforms and their paleoenvironmental implications. Our investigations lead us to propose that the Holden area was subjected to a “wet” lacustrine phase of Hesperian age and an “icy” phase during the Amazonian. Deltaic, coastal, and lacus…
