Deep cuts. Beautiful Mars series.
Planetary Geomorphology Image of the Month, January 1, 2018: Colin Dundas (U.S. Geological Survey). Martian “gullies” are a class of landforms on steep slopes, characterized by an upper alcove and a depositional apron, linked by a channel. On Earth, similar … Continue reading
Never the twain shall meet. Beautiful Mars series.
This observation captures details regarding the evolution of gully features observed in a crater in Acidalia Planitia. A Context Camera image provides context for these gullies showing an approximately 7-kilometer diameter crater in which we see that the gullies occur … Continue reading
A certain starkness. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, August 16, 2017. This image shows the part of the northern cliff face of Hebes Chasma at the top of the image. The linear features aligned diagonally across the top of the image are large … Continue reading
This is a close view of the rim and upper wall of an impact crater on the Martian surface. The layers in enhanced color are exposed subsurface strata that are relatively resistant to erosion. Boulder-like rubble beyond the crater rim … Continue reading
Monitoring the steep slopes of Asimov Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Those rugged slopes. Beautiful Mars series.
This unnamed, approximately 30-kilometer diameter crater, formed in the Southern highlands of Mars. Our image shows regions of geologic diversity within, making this an interesting spot for scientists to study how different Martian processes interact with each other. Gullies, or … Continue reading
