Sinuous Ridges and Meanders

These ridges are thought to be old river channels, but wind erosion has created inverted topography.

Squiggly Sand Dunes

It is now late Northern spring on Mars, so the Southern middle latitudes get very low-sun illumination that accentuates subtle topography. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Fall Frost Accumulation on Russell Crater Dunes

Russell Crater dunes are a favorite target for HiRISE images not only because of their incredible beauty, but for how we can measure the accumulation of frost year after year in the fall, and its disappearance in the spring. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Channels in Phlegra Montes

The objective of this observation is to determine the nature of a group of what appears to be channels that trend in a west-east direction. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)
