o Gullies Old and New Near the Argyre Region

  As gullies form on slopes, sediment can become deposited
  to form lobe-shaped fans.

o Higher Terrain between Sinai and Solis Plana

  The area is riddled with faults and ridges that look like
  uncovered magma dikes.

o Filled Crater and Scallops

  These scallop formations might be possibly due to ground ice

o Pits in Hale Crater Ejecta

  The pits visible here aren't impact craters. The material
  they're embedded into is ejecta from a large crater called Hale.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
