Landslide in Northern Mid-Latitudes

Landslide in Northern Mid-Latitudes

A Landslide in the Northern Mid-Latitudes
The objective of this observation is to examine a landslide in a valley along a mesa. The material seems to be rough in places that HiRISE may be able to resolve even though this portion of the area is in shadow. This image may give us clues to the makeup of these mesas that are common in this location.
