Abstract: [1] 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.
