Scalloped Depression

Scalloped Depressions
The process of sublimation in these scallop-shaped depressions is probably much too slow to be seen, but we can still look for wind-caused changes that may be relevant to their formation. A small, low-albedo (sand-filled?) pit in one of the major depressions might be the most likely to change.
