HiRISE: Sedimentary fans north of Mojave Crater

ESP_038851_1900In this observation, does the morphology of these possible sedimentary fans match those found in Mojave Crater? A high resolution image can be useful to determine systematic changes in boulder size (an indication of how much energy moved the sediment) or channel characteristics (e.g. width, depth) with distance from Mojave. Is fan stratigraphy, erosional state, and crater density consistent with Mojave as a source of the sediment?  [More at link]
