Named in honor of Mary E. (Mimi) Strobell, geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. Early in her career she was a member of a team that conducted some of the earliest airborne surveys in the United States. In recent years she has coordinated much of the detailed information used to establish the extensive nomenclature of features on the terrestrial planets and on the satellites of the giant planets.
