Ice-rich mantling deposits accumulate from the atmosphere in the Martian mid-latitudes in cycles during periods of high obliquity (axial tilt), as recently as several million years ago. These deposits accumulate over cycles in layers, and here in the southern mid-latitudes, … Continue reading
This image covers a portion of a typical impact crater in Terra Sirenum at about 40 degrees south latitude on Mars. At the top of the image, outside the crater rim, there is a mid-latitude mantle, rough in places where … Continue reading

Unusual gullied slope in southern mid-latitudes. Beautiful Mars series.
All along Acheron Fossae. Beautiful Mars series.
Hummocky material in Deuteronilus Mensae. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 7, 2016. This VIS image shows part of the floor of an unnamed crater on the northern edge of Terra Sabaea. Many processes have been at work to modify the initial floor to create … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, February 10, 2016. Today’s image is located on the boundary between Terra Sabaea and Utopia Planitia – west of yesterday’s image location. The morphology of this region is comprised of hills, some of which have … Continue reading
This image was taken in one of the regions on Mars well-known for its viscous flow features (VFF), which are massive flowing deposits believed to be composed of a mixture of ice and dust similar to glaciers on Earth. In … Continue reading
