An earlier issues, September 2008, of the Utah

exhumed paleochannels in the Morrison and Cedar

of exhumed paleochannels seen on satellite images of
Mars. The article discussing these paleochannels is:

Ancient Exhumed River Channels of the Morrison and
Cedar Mountain Formations—Analogs for Eastern
Utah Oil and Gas Fields and Features on Mars Too!

them is:
