Description:

12 July 2006 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows terrain southwest of Meroe Patera in Syrtis Major Planum, Mars. Wind streaks formed in the lee -- i.e., the downwind side -- of impact craters are common throughout the scene, including the small impact crater near the center of the image with light-toned ejecta radiating outward from its rim. Near the bottom (south) of the image, three light-toned slope streaks, created by dry mass movements of dust, extend down the sloping side walls of two overlapping impact craters.
