Possible Rock Falls on Steep Slopes in Cerberus Fossae

Possible Rock Falls on Steep Slopes in Cerberus Fossae

Rock Falls on Steep Slopes
How can one mission help another? With HiRISE resolution, we can take “before” images in order to identify fresh rockfalls that might be able to be associated with seismic events or Marsquakes that have been detected by the InSight lander. This observation of Cerberus Fossae is also useful to detect other changes on the slopes.
