Light-Toned Layered Deposits
The SHARAD instrument on MRO has identified a thick unit of material here most likely associated with the light toned layered deposits at the rim of Valles Marineris, especially near Ius Chasmata. This location may be an ideal one for determining the thickness of the deposits and characterizing the properties of this material.
