Ada Crater Slope Monitoring

Ada Crater Slope Monitoring

Impactful Ada
Ada is a very (geologically) fresh crater with steep slopes. Our aim is to image it occasionally through a Mars year (two Earth years) to look recurring slope lineae and other mass movements. The exposed, light-toned bedrock is always stunning to view. Ada is named for a place in Oklahoma, US.
