18 May 2004 Mars is a desert planet, upon which wind has a great influence on the expression of its surface materials. This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows large ripples (or small dunes) of windblown sediment among hills in the southeastern Cerberus region near 11.0N, 199.5W. Ripple orientations vary throughout the scene, indicating that dominant winds are influenced by the interplay of wind and local topographic features such as craters and hills. The picture covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across and is illuminated by sunlight from the left/lower left.
