Martian Droplike Islands

According to team of researchers led by Lorena Moskardelli from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) Martian droplike “islands” have formed deep under the water. Scientists emphasize striking similarity between the features of the Martian terrain and elongated hills on the seabed off the coast of Trinidad, confirming the hypothesis that in ancient times the northern plains of the Red Planet covered by the ocean. Martian ‘islands’ have a length of  from five to fifty miles and takes four to four hundred square miles, that is they are big enough to look more like the deep erosional remnants, than ground-based formation created by wind. Indeed, laboratory experiments suggest that the triangular form of the “island” could appear only under water.
