Just you wait, slopes of Juventae Chasma! Beautiful Mars series.
Juventae Fons layered deposits and dunes. Beautiful Mars series.
Recurring slope lineae (RSL) are best explained as due to seasonal seeping of water on steep slopes in warm seasons. The HiRISE team has produced digital terrain models (DTMs) for many key RSL sites, which then allows us to orthorectify … Continue reading
Beautiful Mars series: Dune change detection in Juventae Chasma. More Beautiful Mars images.
Juventae Chasma is a large canyon located northeast of the Valles Marineris canyon system in the equatorial part of Mars’ western hemisphere. Valles Marineris is about the size of the Mediterranean Sea if it were emptied of water; it would … Continue reading
Numerous places on Mars show erosion by precipitation, whether as rainfall or runoff from melting snow. The precipitation could have come from a thicker atmosphere or a temporary boost in atmospheric temperature and density following a large impact. Both scenarios … Continue reading
