Mars Atmospheric Temperature and Dust Storm Tracking
This graphic overlays Martian atmospheric temperature data as curtains over an image of Mars taken during a regional dust storm. Temperature data and global image were both recorded on Oct. 18, 2014, by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
Seasonal Temperature Pattern Indicating Martian Dust Storms
This graphic shows Martian atmospheric temperature data related to seasonal patterns in occurrence of large regional dust storms. The data shown here were collected by the Mars Climate Sounder instrument on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
These North Polar layered deposits, composed of ice, captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, show what looks like drag folds, where rock layers bend (fold) before they break in a fault.
There is a circular feature in this observation from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft that appears to stand above the surrounding terrain. This feature is probably an inverted crater that was filled in with sediment.
This image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft targets a 3-kilometer diameter crater that occurs within the ejecta blanket of the much older Bakhuysen Crater, a 150-kilometer diameter impact crater in Noachis Terra.
This image montage features a two-dimensional radar cross section of Mars' north polar cap collected by SHARAD instrument on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft (top), and a color image mosaic of the polar cap from NASA's Viking project (bottom)
