MARS RECONNAISSANCE ORBITER HIRISE IMAGES
July 10, 2013
o Northwest Ius Chasma Landslide and Dune Field
Landslides in Valles Marineris are truly enormous, sometimes
stretching from one wall to the base of another.
o Knob in the South Polar Layered Deposits of Mars
The South Polar Layered Deposits of Mars are a thick stack of
layers of ice and dust, deposited over millions of years.
o Mawrth Vallis Geodiversity
This ancient valley once hosted flowing water, and its erosive
power cut down into the underlying layers of rock to expose a host
of diverse geologic landforms visible today.
o Sediments in Ladon Basin
This image shows light-toned layered deposits at the contact between
the Ladon Valles channel and Ladon Basin.
All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
