THEMIS: Sinuous features hint at ground ice
THEMIS Image of the Day, November 8, 2018. This VIS image is located in an unnamed crater in Noachis Terra.
The sinuous feature near the bottom of the crater rim appears to have been caused by down slope movement of materials. The sinuous nature may have been created by inclusion of a volatile material such as ice.
