Possible sulfate-rich terrain in the northeast Syrtis Major region. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, November 5, 2015. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations … Continue reading
Layered exposures in southern Argyre Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
Layered megablock in Bamberg Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Come out and play! Colorful layered bedrock in an eroded crater in Terra Sirenum. Beautiful Mars series.

This scene includes chaotic deposits with a wide range of colors. The deposits are distinctive with both unique colors and small-scale textures such as fracture patterns. These are probably sedimentary rocks, transported and deposited in water or air. The original … Continue reading
This image covers layered sedimentary rocks on the floor of an impact crater north of Eberswalde Crater. There may have been a lake in this crater billions of years ago, and the area was once considered a landing spot for … Continue reading
In this recent HiRISE image, we can see quite a spectacular layering pattern inside an impact crater called Spallanzani. Seeing layering is always exciting to geologists because it implies that the region has experienced multiple climatic conditions or geologic processes … Continue reading
