Title: Seafloor mounds: Possible martian analogues

Abstract: Mounds on the Arctic seafloor characterize parts of the southern Canadian Beaufort Sea. There are two distinct types. Numerous small-scale conical mounds, 5-25 m high, are concentrated in a linear band along the continental shelf edge. Much larger mounds on the continental slope are less common, generally flat-topped, isolated features. The morphologies and origins of the mounds will be described and discussed.
