Mars ocean map (Univ. Colorado) A recently-published study provides additional evidence that an ocean covered as much as one third of the surface of Mars early in its history. The study, published Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience, studied river valleys and delta deposits mapped on the planet by several spacecraft.

The study also identified 40,000 river valleys on the planet, four times the number previously identified.
