Crater Dunes

A rippled patch of sand in Becquerel Crater on Mars moved about two meters (about two yards) between November 24, 2006 and September 5, 2010, in one of two images taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Blowing in the Martian Wind

This image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows several large channels emptying into the eastern Hellas Basin. These southern channels are filled with material today. Whether the material contains volitiles (like ice) is unknown.

Tharsis Volcanics

A vast dune field lies near the northern polar cap of Mars. Seen here in summer, the dunes have partially buried an impact crater about 1,000 (3,300 feet) wide. This image is from NASA's Mars Odyssey.

Mars Odyssey All Stars: Dunes Engulf Crater

Most of the hills in this image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft have dark streaks thought to be where bright dust has been removed by sliding down the hillside.

Down the Hill

The unusual surface texture seen in the image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft reflects the resistance of the surface rocks to erosion by the wind. This image shows part of the northern end of Gordii Dorsum.

Dunes

Now that summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere of Mars, the dunes near the polar cap have shed all their winter frost, as shown in this image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft.

'Butterfly' Crater

Tectonics played the major role in shaping the surface of this image captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft. This image contains arcuate fractures and isolated depressions containing chaos.

Eridania Basin, located at the head of Ma'adim Vallis, has mounting geomorphic and spectral evidence that it may have been the site of an ancient inland sea. This image is from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

In an area like Russell Crater, very ancient impact crater, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter can follow changes in the terrain by comparing images taken at different times. Frost (carbon dioxide ice) is seen in this image.

Polar Dunes

This observation from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows an excellent example of what is called 'fretted terrain,' termed so because of the eroded appearance of the surface.

Fretted Terrains and Ground Deformation

Polar surface winds can reach high velocities. These winds can cause clouds to form when the winds flow into troughs and become chaotic. This image from NASA's Mars Odyssey shows trough clouds as linear bands.

Arsia Chasmata is a complex collapsed region at the northeastern flank of Arsia Mons. The collapsed region aligns with the Pavonis and Ascraeus Mons volcanoes, indicating that all three volcanoes are located on a major fracture in the Tharsis region.

This image, taken by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft, shows the western wall of Uzboi Vallis near the intersection of the vallis and Holden Crater. Many channels dissect the wall of the channel.

This color image was acquired by the Surface Stereo Imager on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander on the 21st day of the mission, or Sol 20 (June 15, 2008). It shows lumps of ice in the lower left corner of a trench nicknamed 'Dodo-Goldilocks.'
