Images of planetary surfaces returned by the Mariner, Viking, and Voyager spacecraft show landforms that can only be understood by careful comparison to terrestrial analogs. This has resulted in renewed interest in terrestrial impact craters, large-scale volcanism, eolian erosion, cataclysmic landslides, debris flows, relict landforms, flood channels, and erosion surfaces. Geomorphic processes and the resulting landforms must be evaluated for various gravitational, atmospheric, tectonic, and temporal constraints. -from Author
