Cones on Crater Floor in Terra Sirenum

Cones on Crater Floor in Terra Sirenum

Cones on a Crater Floor in Terra Sirenum
This observation focuses on a few cones in a larger cone field on a crater floor. These cones in particular are singled out because two within this target appear to flow over the southwestern edge of relatively small craters. Verifying this will help unravel the stratigraphy of this crater floor. If what is seen at larger Context Camera scale holds up, then the cones are the youngest features in this area of the crater.
