QUIZ Solution


This is a map of Martian magnetic fields in the southern highlands of Mars. In this area on Mars magnetic stripes possibly resulting from crustal movement are the most prominent.

The false blue and red colors represent invisible magnetic fields in the Martian crust that point in opposite directions.

The magnetic fields appear to be organized in bands, with adjacent bands pointing in opposite directions. These stripes are strikingly similar to patterns seen in the Earth's crust at the mid-oceanic ridges.
