Steep Slopes and Dunes in East Coprates Chasma

Steep Slopes and Dunes in East Coprates Chasma

Steep Slopes and Dunes
There has been confirmed “growth” of recurring slope lineae occurring between other HiRISE images in this well studied area of eastern Coprates Chasma. Falling dunes are also migrating. This observation can help us with continued monitoring to follow those changes over time, as well create a digital terrain model. Coprates Chasma is part of the Valles Marineris canyon system.
