Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) measured the most strongly magnetized crust in the heavily cratered southern hemisphere of Mars. Our analysis concentrates on the magnetic lineations or patterns centered near latitude 40°S, longitude 180°W, with a range of values ±40°, using a rotated Cartesian coordinate system. We downward continued the magnetic field measured at $400 km elevation and very closely match the corresponding component measured during the aerobraking phase at altitudes extending down to $100 km.

scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
