Candidate ExoMars landing site in Oxia Palus region. Beautiful Mars series.
Dunes in western Medusae Fossae. These dark dunes in the western Medusae Fossae Formation provide some evidence of being derived locally, probably coming from the north and because of the wind. Beautiful Mars series.
Landforms in Terra Cimmeria. Terra Cimmeria is one part of the heavily cratered, Southern highland region of Mars. Beautiful Mars series.
Martian weather remained quite active last week. Several small polar storms developed into a regional dust storm over the northern plains. Local-scale storms were observed along the seasonal south polar cap edge from Sirenum to Cimmeria. Looking to the mid-to-low … Continue reading
It’s not only hearts that can break. This image shows the fractured floor of a large, ancient impact crater, located in Meridiani Planum, in the Northern hemisphere of Mars. Beautiful Mars series.
Dunes flowing like martian wine. There are also some nice ridges and light-toned deposits here in Orson Welles Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Troughs with axial ridges in Acidalia Planitia. There are large, hundreds of meters in length, troughs in Acidalia Planitia, with high axial ridges down the center. While they appear fairly bland in Mars Orbital Camera images, we can see better … Continue reading
Dare to climb. These steep slopes in East Coprates Chasma are a rappeller’s delight. Beautiful Mars series.
Gullies on Martian sand dunes, like these in Matara Crater, have been very active, with many flows in the last ten years. The flows typically occur when seasonal frost is present. Here, we see frost in and around two gullies, … Continue reading
Dusty conditions across much of the martian southern highlands last week. Several short-lived local-scale dust storms were observed along the seasonal south polar ice cap edge, while another storm north of Argyre pushed northeast into Valles Marineris. Dust lofted by … Continue reading
