Inuvik (crater)

Inuvik is a crater located outside of the perennial north polar cap on Mars.[1] The crater's diameter is 20.5 kilometres, and it lies at latitude 78.7°N, longitude 28.6°W. In 1988, the International Astronomical Union's Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (IAU/WGPSN) named the crater after the town of Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada.
