Which Came First, the Yardang or the Platy Flow?

One of the great strengths of HiRISE is that its high resolution can help resolve interesting questions: in this observation, is the platy flow material younger than the yardang-forming material? (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Dunes Flying in Formation

In this image of a dune field in a large crater near Mawrth Vallis, some of the dunes appear to be in formation. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Chevrons on a Flow Surface in Marte Vallis

Lava flows cool as they move allowing their surface to freeze solid. The constant movement below this surface can break it up into a rough mass of jumbled broken rock. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Recurring Slope Lineae in Coprates Chasma

Recurring slope lineae (RSL) may be due to active seeps of water. These dark flows are abundant along the steep slopes of ancient bedrock in Coprates Chasma. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)

Finding Faults in Melas Chasma

It has been recently suggested that Melas Chasma may have been produced by an impact crater. To test this idea, HiRISE has been imaging surrounding small faults such as the ones seen in this image. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)
