Along the rim of the crater are many channels. Since the channels are found only on the inside of the rim, and not the outside, it is thought that they are caused by groundwater, rather than by rainfall. (wikipedia entry)
A crater is a circular depression likely created by an impact event. On Mars large craters are named after deceased scientists, writers and others who have contributed to the lore of Mars. Small creaters (less than 60km) are named after small towns and villages.
