From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eridania Lake is a theorized ancient lake on Mars with a surface area of roughly 1.1 million square kilometers. It is located at the source of the Ma'adim Vallis outflow channel.[1] As Eridania Lake dried out in the late Noachian epoch it divided into a series of smaller lakes.[2]
