Light-Toned Knobby Unit in Degraded Crater

A Knobby Unit in a Degraded Crater
This observation targets light-toned knobby units located within a heavily degraded crater. This unit is superficially similar to others located within a paleolake basin in the Eridania region, which appear to be altered ashfall deposits that washed into the lake or hydrothermally altered basin floor deposits. The units here may be the result of a similar process.
