Marth Crater is an impact crater in the Oxia Palus quadrangle on Mars at 13.0° N and 3.5° W. and is 98.4 km in diameter. Its name was approved in 1973, and it was named after Albert Marth.[1] Light and dark markings on the surface are due to dust and sand blown around. Some of the dark sand has formed into dunes.
