Central Deposits in Pasteur Crater

Central Deposits in Pasteur Crater
Caption throwback: The deposits in this image are eroding into knobs and ridges. The erosion is probably dominated by wind, as most of the ridges are parallel. This is common in wind-eroded features, with the ridges generally aligned with the prevailing wind. At high resolution, layering is revealed in many of the knobs and outcrops. (Read the full caption.)
