This HiRISE image shows what is termed a pedestal crater, so-called because the level of the surface adjacent to the crater is elevated relative to the surface of the surrounding terrain. The raised surface has patterns and a general outline … Continue reading

THEMIS Image of the Day, March 11, 2014. Today’s VIS image shows dust devil tracks covering most of the surface in this region of Utopia Planitia. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, February 12, 2014. Today’s VIS image shows a different part of Utopia Planitia than yesterday’s image. Both are marked with hundreds of dust devil tracks. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, February 11, 2014. The dark markings in this VIS image are tracks made by the passage of “dust devils”. Dust devils are common in the extensive plains of the northern latitudes. This image is located … Continue reading
Craters surrounded by debris aprons that stand above the surrounding surface are known as pedestal craters. Scientists think the slab-like apron of ejecta around such craters covers layers that are rich in water ice. Nearly all pedestal craters found so … Continue reading
