Schaeberle (Martian crater)
Schaeberle Crater, as seen by THEMIS
|Eponym||John Martin Schaeberle, an American astronomer (1853-1924)|
Schaeberle is a crater in the Iapygia quadrangle of Mars, located at 24.7° S and 309.9° W. It measures approximately 159 kilometers in diameter and was named after John Martin Schaeberle, an American astronomer (1853–1924).
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.
