Avernus Cavi Fractures

This Fractured Land
This image features small collection of cave candidates in Avernus Cavi, located in Elysium Planitia. These candidates are located at the base of scarps formed by extensional fracturing. We might be able to resolve rim and floor textures as finely as possible to verify if any caves are indeed present.
