Margaritifer Terra is an ancient, heavily cratered region of Mars. It is centered just south of the Martian equator at 4.9°S and 25°W and covers 1616 miles (2600 Km) at its widest extent. The area reveals "chaos terrain", outflow channels, and alluvial plains that are indicative of massive flooding. Wind erosion patterns are also in evidence.
A region within the Margaritifer Terra shows some of the highest valley network densities on the planet. The Ares Vallis is another notable feature, where the flood and flow patterns appear in evidence; it was the landing site of NASA's Mars Pathfinder.
Margaritifer Terra was named in 1979, after the Pearl coast, south India.
