Patchy Outcrop of Light-Toned Materials

A Patchy Outcrop
This observation targets patchy exposures of light-toned outcrops. These materials may be chloride bearing and if so, this might give us a time frame for the formation of chloride deposits in this region. Erosion appears to have cut through the entirety of the light-toned materials in these outcrops, which should allow probing of the stratigraphic context, thickness and any possible internal layering of these materials.
