MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-438, 31 July 2003 The terrain of the south polar residual ice cap, made up mostly of frozen carbon dioxide, has come to be known by many as "swiss cheese terrain," because many areas of the cap resemble slices of swiss cheese. However, not all of the south polar cap looks like a tasty lunch food. This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a series of curving scarps formed by erosion and sublimation of carbon dioxide from the south polar cap. This area is located near 86.3S, 51.2W. The image is illuminated by sunlight from the upper left; the area is about 1.5 km (0.9 mi) wide.
