Curiosity: Profiling Amphitheater Valley

1688-mastcam100Sol 1688, May 6, 2017. Using its 100-mm lens, the Mastcam shot a 14-frame profile of finely layered outcrops making up the target Amphitheater Valley. While the outcrop is not continuous, in several places cross-bedding appears within the layers, suggesting they were deposited under flowing water or as windblown dune sands.
