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
Surface textures in Sinus Meridiani. Beautiful Mars series.
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
Regional storm activity continued over Xanthe Terra as last week’s regional storm parked itself over the equator, just west of the Opportunity rover site. The storm extended from Chryse Planitia in the north to northwest Noachis in the southern hemisphere, … Continue reading
This white, purple, and pink surface is located on the floor of an impact crater on the southeast rim of the larger Vinogradov Crater in southern Margaritifer Terra. The surface consists of what is left of a series of thin … Continue reading
