This image, captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, shows the western side of an elongated pit depression in eastern Noctis Labyrinthus. Along the pit's upper wall is a light-toned layered deposit.
This image was taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, in one of the regions on Mars well-known for its viscous flow features (VFF), which are massive flowing deposits believed to be composed of a mixture of ice and dust.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft has been orbiting Mars for nine years. These barchan sand dunes have been imaged at least five times already, and each time, a bit more movement is revealed.
This image, taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, is of an area on the lower southeastern flank of the volcano Elysium Mons. A small, dark pristine-appearing pit is clearly visible among the numerous small impact craters.
Schaeberle Crater is a large, heavily-infilled crater with many interesting features. This image NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft shows a window into the crater fill deposit, showcasing eroding bedrock and aeolian landforms.
Mars 2020 Candidate Landing Site in McLaughlin Crater
McLaughlin Crater (21.9 N, 337.6 E) is a large, approximately 95-kilometer diameter impact crater located north of Mawrth Vallis, in Arabia Terra, seen here by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
This image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft shows a water-carved channel. The channel pattern, called dendritic because of its tree, like branching running down over the rim of an ancient impact basin across the basin floor.
The striking feature in this image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is a boulder-covered landslide along a canyon wall. Landslides occur when steep slopes fail, sending a mass of soil and rock to flow downhill, leaving a scarp atop the slope.
The arc of hills in this image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft is the rim of an old and infilled impact crater. The sediments that were deposited within the crater have since formed polygonal cracks.
This image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft shows an interesting collection of kilometer-scale craters with flat and smooth floors. The craters themselves may be caused by debris from a distant larger impact.
This image acquired by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft in September, shows Curiosity as it was exploring the boundary between two rock units: the light-toned Murray Formation and the overlying and darker-toned Stimson unit.
This image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft shows bright and dark patterns with curving boundaries. This region of Echus Chasma has been flooded by lava flows that produced rough and smooth surfaces.
The central portion of this image is dominated by a sharp-rimmed crater that is roughly 5 kilometers in diameter. On its slopes, gullies show young (geologically recent) headward erosion, which is the lengthening of the gully in the upslope direction.
This whole area, located in Solis Planum, is an interesting, tectonic terrain south of Noctis Labrynthus which generally slopes toward the south as seen by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
In this image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, an ancient sinuous meandering river system is surrounded by features called 'yardangs.' The yardangs are the ridge-like landforms that align approximately north-south.
Small Channels and a Rocky Patch in the Cydonia Region
The southern section of Cydonia Region is dominated by both a series of craters and the remnants of channels that may be from a past fluvial system as seen by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
