The unnamed crater is filled with a large amount of sand, the surface of which has been sculpted into dune forms. This type of crater fill is common at high latitude. This image is from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft.

The total distance driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity passed the one-mile mark a few days before the first anniversary of the rover's landing on Mars. The mapped area is within Gale Crater, and north of Mount Sharp, in the middle of the crater.

This image, taken by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft, shows a portion of the rim and floor of Gale Crater. The crater rim is dissected by a channel, and dunes are located on the floor at the rim margin.

This image taken by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey shows just one of the many channels located in the northern part of Terra Sabaea which is heavily fractured and channeled, breaking up into a chaotic terrain as the elevation drops down to the northern plains.

Twenty-one times during the first 12 weeks that NASA's Mars rover Curiosity worked on Mars, the rover's Rover Environmental Monitoring Station (REMS) detected brief dips in air pressure that could be caused by a passing whirlwind.
