Description:

MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-550, 20 November 2003 This spectacular vista of sedimentary rocks outcropping on a slope in Aram Chaos was acquired by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) on 14 November 2003. Dark piles of coarse talus have come down the slopes as these materials continue to erode over time. Note that there are no small meteor impact craters in this image, indicating that erosion of these outcrops has been recent, if not on-going. This area is located near 2.8S, 20.5W. The 200 meter scale bar is about 656 feet across. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the lower right.
