Broad U-Shaped Ridge in Aeolis Dorsa

Broad U-Shaped Ridge in Aeolis Dorsa

A U-Shaped Ridge in Aeolis Dorsa
This observation features a very nice meander in a “fluvial ridge” system. Our goal is to examine details of the sedimentary structure, and seek better understanding of the percentage of fluvial sediment vs. substrate vs. overburden. There is also a system of sinuous ridges that hasn’t been imaged in this region yet.
