Nice argument for the Yin.

The next bit is to find the Yan; if there is divergence as a result of plate motion at the Valles Marineris, there should be an equal convergence zone with thrust event hills in scallopes ridges and (due to the remarkable thickness of the crust, a zone of smooth ground around it caused by soil collapse during the megathrust event(s).
