2 August 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a circular mesa and layered materials that are partially-exposed from beneath a thick, dark mantle in the Aureum Chaos region of Mars. The features are part of a much larger circular form (bigger than the image shown here) that marks the location of a crater that was filled with light-toned sedimentary rock, buried, and then later re-exposed when the upper crust of Mars broke apart in this region to form buttes and mesas of " chaotic terrain."The circular mesa in this image might also be the location of a formerly filled and buried crater. This image is located near 4.0S, 26.9W. It covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across; sunlight illuminates the scene from the left/upper left.
