o Crater Slopes: The Power of a Repeat Image

  Repeat coverage actually serves a special purpose, such
  as detecting seasonal changes.

o Gullies in Liu Hsin Crater

  By comparing to gullies that are just 20 kilometers away,
  we may be able to determine the factors that affect their size.

o Southeast Rim of Hale Crater

  The central peak of Hale Crater is a common target for recurring
  slope lineae, but an image of the rim might help us see if they
  occur elsewhere.

o Triple-Crater in Elysium Planitia

  This image shows a triple impact crater that probably formed when a
  binary--or even triple--asteroid struck the surface.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
