MARS RECONNAISSANCE ORBITER HIRISE IMAGES
May 29, 2013
o Endeavour Crater Western Rim
This digital terrain model covers the western rim of Endeavour Crater
where the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has been investigating
o Active Slope Flows on the Central Hills of Hale Crater
In some cases, there are many seasonal flows on warm slopes, suggesting
some role for water in their activity.
o Crater with Debris Aprons in Tyrrhena Terra
The interior rims of this crater are lined with debris aprons consisting
of material eroded from the alcoves at the top of the crater walls.
o Valleys in Tyrrhena Terra
These valleys are very different in appearance compared to the very old,
large, and well-developed valley networks on Mars.
All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
