HiRISE: We found geology in a chaotic place

ESP_054701_1800We found geology in a chaotic place. The terrain here lives up to its description as “chaotic:” we see small hills, mesas, buttes and valleys. This area is called Oxia Palus, and its debris likely came from Ravi Vallis, which is an ancient outflow channel. (North is to the right.)
