Hellas is an ancient impact structure and is the deepest and broadest enclosed basin on Mars. It measures about 2,300 kilometers across and the floor of the basin, Hellas Planitia, contains the lowest elevations on Mars. The Hellas region can … Continue reading
Layered deposits in Uzboi Vallis sometimes occur in alcoves along the valley and/or below where tributaries enter it. These deposits may record deposition into a large lake that once filled Uzboi Vallis when it was temporarily dammed at its northern … Continue reading
Holden Crater in southern Margaritifer Terra displays a series of finely layered deposits on its floor (white and light purple in an enhanced color image). The layered deposits are especially well exposed in the southwestern section of the crater where … Continue reading
Layers northwest of Antoniadi Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Understanding both the spatial and temporal distribution of hydrated (water-bearing) minerals on Mars is essential for deciphering the aqueous history of the planet. Over 300 meters of layered beds are exposed in this trough of Noctis Labyrinthus, at the western … Continue reading
Massifs on layered bedrock in south Cydonia Colles. Beautiful Mars series.
Nothing gets a geologist more excited than layered bedrock, except perhaps finding a fossil or holding a meteorite in your hand. All of these things create a profound feeling of history, the sense of a story that took place ages … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, August 3, 2016. Today’s false color image shows the northern part of Terby Crater. This image shows the layered deposits that fill the crater. The THEMIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can … Continue reading
