The possible geologic origins

The Aganippe Fossa shows a length of roughly 600 km and the bounding graben walls are 3 to 7 km apart. The formation of the Aganippe Fossae is discussed. Some scientists suggest that it represents an isolated member of the Thaumasia Fossae group, other interpretations suggest the late stage intrusive activity at Olympus Mons that formed the giant dikes in the region.
