Impact-generated hydrothermal systems on the Noachian surface of Mars are implicated by morphological and chemical evidence for (hot) water activity. The mechanics of their emplacement and evolution are well understood and thermochemical models (see our accompanying abstract) help constrain the formation conditions of sheet silicates and other alteration minerals. In this report we explore the paths of water through those systems over the periods (103 to >106 yrs) they were actively driving fluid flow through Mars’ crust.
