To ikeharel: 1.8 m/day
 
Hi Ike,
Those marks cannot be millions of years old. Margerie flows at 1.8 m/day and it is 34 km long. If those streaks had been formed right at the origin, it would have taken them 34,000/1.8 = 1888.88 days = ~52 years to reach the terminus. So they can't be older than 52 years.
Cheers,
MT
