Remembrance of Craters Past

Remembrance of Craters Past
Nestled against this mound are the remnants of a cluster of impact craters that are not only severely eroded, but are likely further deformed by glacial processes. This image is in the Northern Hemisphere of Mars.  
The Slope of Arandas Crater

The Slope of Arandas Crater
Our objective is to look for recurring slope lineae in the Martian mid-summer, features that we have not seen in previous images. Are the RSL caused by dry ice or granular flows? This image shows the northern part of Arandas, a 25-kilometer impact crater.  
Possible Quartz-Rich Terrain in Antoniadi Crater

Possible Quartz-Rich Terrain in Antoniadi Crater
This region contains quartz/hydrated silica-bearing materials and clays, possibly tied to a hydrothermal weathering environment. Our picture can also accurately place CRISM mineral observations into morphologic context. This observation was a public target suggestion via HiWish.  
Chaos on the Floor of Candor Chasma

Chaos on the Floor of Candor Chasma
Our goal is to investigate interesting platy/polygonal features in the interior deposits of Candor Chasma, and to resolve any layering within each platy structure to determine an origin.  
Depressions near Coogoon Valles

Depressions near Coogoon Valles
This feature likely formed by collapse. Its origin is unknown, but it fits the bill of a candidate caldera formed through ancient explosive eruptions. It is also in the vicinity of one of the top ranked landing sites for the ExoMars mission.
