o Stratigraphy in Crommelin Crater

  Crommelin Crater in northwest Meridiani Planum is a large
  structure which contains light-toned material with layered
  and stepped buttes.

o Sediments inside Aram Crater

  Aram Chaos is characterized by chaotic terrains overlain by
  approximately 900 meters of sediments within the 280 kilometer
  diameter Aram Crater.

o Lava Flow Front in Elysium Planitia

  This rough lava is surrounded by smoother lava with abundant
  inflation features.

o Bits and Pieces...

  Curiosity's sky crane impact disturbed bright dust, revealing
  the darker rocky substrate.
