MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-512, 13 October 2003 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) picture shows wind tails and streaks formed in fine sediment that mantles the upper southwest slopes of the equatorial volcano, Pavonis Mons. On the large martian volcanoes, winds tend to blow downslope. The streaks shown here are evidence of the powerful ability for the thin atmosphere over the martian volcanoes to transport sediment. This picture is located near 0.1N, 113.8W, and covers an area 3 km (1.9 mi) wide. The image is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
