Layers Exposed on Mounds South of Nilosyrtis Mensae

Exposed on Mounds
The objective of this observation is to examine layers exposed on mounds in a valley to the south of Nilosyrtis Mensae. Nilosyrtis is just to the east of Protonilus Mensae and both lie along the Martian dichotomy boundary. This region has also been imaged by the Context Camera, another instrument on MRO, and may have contained large amounts of ice.
