A Flow-Like Feature within Chryse Planitia
This image covers a flow-like feature that is hypothesized to be the result of subsurface sediment mobilization. Can we learn any details about the associated mud movement over the Martian surface? The flow is showing an interesting characteristic that might be evidence of the former presence of an icy-muddy crust.
