Buried by time. Over time, this crater was buried by folded deposits, although we can still tell it is an impact crater. However, we can still see ridges and gullies. Are these ridges made of material that proved more resistant … Continue reading
Strangely silent in southwest Arabia Terra. Beautiful Mars series. [More at links]
Curved ridge and layered materials. Is the curved ridge a remnant of inverted stream channel sediment, crater ejecta, or something else (e.g., tectonic)? Are the layered materials sedimentary rock? 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.
Dare to climb. These steep slopes in East Coprates Chasma are a rappeller’s delight. Beautiful Mars series.
In this observation, we see a set of straight ridges in ancient bedrock near Nirgal Valles. The patterns indicate fractures from tectonic stresses, but how have they been hardened to now stand in positive relief after billions of years of … Continue reading
The goal of this observation is to determine the source of the ridge within a possible moraine that is also present in another HiRISE image. A moraine is a mass of rocks and sediment carried down and deposited by a … Continue reading
Multiple curved ridges at the end of a valley in Protonilus Mensae. Beautiful Mars series.
Ridges in a crater floor. Beautiful Mars series.
