How were the canyons on Titan formed?

  1. The presence of such deep cuts in the landscape indicates that the process that created them was active for a long time or eroded down faster than other areas on Titan’s surface
  2. The researchers’ proposed scenarios include uplift of the terrain and changes in sea level, or perhaps both
  3. It’s likely that a combination of these forces contributed to the formation of the deep canyons, but at present it’s not clear to what degree each was involved
