Astronomy:Lohse (Martian crater)
Viking 1 mosaic
The crater is very eroded. The uplifted area in the center contains gullies. Impact craters generally have a rim with ejecta around them, in contrast volcanic craters usually do not have a rim or ejecta deposits. As craters get larger (greater than 10 km in diameter) they usually have a central peak. The peak is caused by a rebound of the crater floor following the impact.
