Small Ice-Filled Crater on North Polar Layered Deposits

Little Crater, Full of Ice
Ice fill within this impact crater in the North Polar layered deposits may be a site where accumulation could be observed, helping to settle a long-term problem in Mars polar science: are these deposits currently gaining or losing mass? This crater is approximately 136 meters (446 feet) across.
