o Sinuous Ridge Materials in Reuyl Crater

  There are some interesting erosional signs in this observation,
  which will make for a good comparison with other intracrater fans.

o What on Mars is a High Thermal-Inertia Surface?

  What do we mean when we describe a surface as having "high thermal
  inertia"? The term refers to the ability of a material to conduct and
  store heat.

o Layers and Dark Dunes

  The target of this observation is a circular depression in a dark-toned
  unit associated with a field of cones to the northeast.

o Seasonal Flows in the Central Mountains of Hale Crater

  Recurring slope lineae (RSL) are active flows on warm Martian slopes
  that might be caused by seeping water.
