o Slope Monitoring in Aram Chaos
  Images such as this one allow us to test whether these streaks
  grow seasonally and recur annually.

o Embayment in Tectonized Fluvial Terrain

  This observation will help scientists unravel the timing for the
  emplacement of the younger material and the numerous tectonic faults here.

o Sinuous Ridge on the Orson Welles Bajada

  The sinuosity of the ridges tells us something about the speed of the
  water flow: fast moving flows tend to be straighter than slow-moving.

o Layering in Spallanzani Crater

  Seeing layering is always exciting to geologists because it implies that
  the region has experienced multiple climatic conditions or geologic
  processes through time.

o Latest View of Curiosity Rover in Gale Crater

  We periodically image the Curiosity rover and its surroundings, monitoring
  for changes such as from active dunes.
