NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE Images – May 30, 2012
– Near the Mouth of Morava Valles http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_026007_1640
Morava Valles drained Ladon Basin and discharged towards the large regions of chaotic terrain near the head of Ares Valles.
– Landforms Near Grota Valles http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_026356_1960
The landforms in this observation are quite diverse with surrounding terrain that has been eroded by some fluid, either water or lava.
– Streamlined Hills in Elysium Planitia http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_026435_1960
In this location, the cover of wind-blown sand and the effect of many small impact craters has erased such obvious indicators of lava.
– Different Materials Exposed along a Wallrock Slope in Coprates Chasma http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_027063_1655
The bright massive rocks exposed in the wallrock likely represent weathered rocks that have altered to this brighter material.
