Glacier-Like Forms On Mars

This observation is part of ongoing research look at glacier-like forms that show crevasse-type fractures on their surfaces.

These images are needed for a study of fracture mechanics in viscous flow features on Mars. This picture, located in Protonilus Mensae, can show us any changes that have appeared since an earlier observation here in 2016.
