Narrative

A prominent valley, between Mount Jason and Goldich Crest on the southern slopes of the Olympus Range just north of the east end of Lake Vanda. The valley trends northwest - southeast from the upper slopes of Mount Jason over a distance of 1.8 miles to the northeastern shore of Lake Vanda. The valley is significant for marine sedimentary deposits that lie exposed. The feature is named by ACAN for the ship Argo which is associated with Jason and the Argonauts in Greek mythology and continues the theme of names applied across the Olympus Range. The name is useful for reference in scientific literature. The name has been reported to be in local use.
