Dune maze craze. This image shows sand dunes on the northern plains in the spring, when the seasonal frost is sublimating (and making crazy patterns). The dunes have coalesced here into an interlocking maze. Polygons between the dunes are due … Continue reading
Lyot Crater (220-kilometers in diameter) is located in the Northern lowlands of Mars. The crater’s floor marks the lowest elevation in the Northern Hemisphere. On the crater’s floor, we see a network of channels connecting a series of irregular shaped … Continue reading
Planetary Geomorphology Image of the Month, November 30, 2017: Andreas Johnsson (University of Gothenburg, Sweden). Small-scale lobes on Mars (Fig. 1) are tens to hundreds of meters wide and consist of an arcuate frontal riser that is a meter to … Continue reading
The eastern rim of this small 3.5-kilometer crater appears to have collapsed into a much larger crater (about 14-kilometers wide). The larger crater has a large ice flow around its central peak, and is non-circular, with large blocks further suggesting … Continue reading
Pits in the south polar layered deposits. Beautiful Mars series.
Light and dark in Ultimi Scopuli. Beautiful Mars series.
Pits and cracks along a crater wall — February 2017, approximately 303 km above the surface. Beautiful Mars series.
Raised and banded curbed feature in a Tantalus Fossae crater. Beautiful Mars series.
