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.
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 23, 2017. Do you see what I see? Make a wish and then break the wishbone! (THEMIS Art #132) More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
Periglacial terrain. Beautiful Mars series.
Lineated terrain — At first glance, these appear as ridges, but a closer inspection shows patterned ground on a (roughly) level surface. In the absence of a slope, how did these form? Beautiful Mars series.
Possible glacial-like outwash systems in Phlegra Montes. Beautiful Mars series.
Wondrously, wickedly wavy. Beautiful Mars series.
Planetary Geomorphology Image of the Month, July 2015: Alex Barrett (Open University, UK). The following images show the walls of a two kilometre diameter impact crater in Utopia Planitia on Mars. This region is part of the low lying Northern … Continue reading
The mid-latitudes of Mars (about 30 to 60 degrees, north and south) are covered in ice-rich mantling deposits in varying states of degradation. This mantle is thought to be deposited as snow during periods when the angle of the tilt … Continue reading
