Canala Crater

From the USGS Astrogeology Science Center:

The name Canala has been approved for the Martian crater located at 24.35N, 80.0W. For more information, see the database information and the map of MC-10 in the Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature.

Note: Canala crater is a very small impact crater located at the western end of Nilus Chaos, which itself is along the northwestern boundary of Echus Chasma, a very long and major channel that ultimately fed Kasei Valles and Chryse Planitia.
