  'Shaler' Unit's Evidence of Stream Flow

'Shaler' Unit's Evidence of Stream Flow
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This image from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows inclined layering known as cross-bedding in an outcrop called "Shaler" on a scale of a few tenths of meters, or decimeters (1 decimeter is nearly 4 inches). This stratigraphic unit is called the Shaler Unit.
