Crater-Related Deposits North of Oudemans Crater

Crater-Related Deposits North of Oudemans Crater
This image is centered at the boundary between smooth-toned impact melt deposits and a rougher-looking surface that may or may not be related to impact melt from Oudemans Crater. The goal here is to create a mosaic with coverage to the east to get a clearer sense of what is happening at the transition between these two materials.  
Crater, Well-Preserved

Crater, Well-Preserved
This image shows the eastern, terraced side of what might be one the best well-preserved craters on Mars in Kasei Valles. It retains what are believed to be primary crater deposits, such as pitted materials and other volatile-rich and melt-bearing deposits.  
Layering in the Medusae Fossae Formation

Layering in the Medusae Fossae Formation
The Medusae Fossae Formation is a huge discontinuous geological unit that might be of volcanic origin. Some areas are smooth, but others, like in this picture, show impressive layers. How the thickness of these layers taper may help us understand their origin.  
A Lonely Dust Devil

A Lonely Dust Devil
While the main objective of this observation of dunes within a crater to the north of Antoniadi Crater is to track changes over time, HiRISE often catches nature in action. In this case, it’s a well-defined dust devil traversing the dunes, leaving exposed, darker subsurface material in its wake.
