HiRISE: Delta-like lobes in Aeolis Dorsa

tumblr_piwvbndqmM1rlz4gso2_1280Delta-like lobes in Aeolis Dorsa. Branching fluvial deposits appear similar to others at Aeolis Dorsa which have been interpreted as delta-like. With HiRISE images and elevation models we would be able to measure deposit thicknesses more accurately.

Observations like these may suggest that Aeolis Dorsa is a paleo-coastal region that may be an important site for exploration in the future.
