About this image

Long term winds in the area between Tharsis and Elysium have produced many dramatic landforms. Not all wind action is readily visible. The region shown in this image has been subject to wind erosion, but one must look closely to see the wind-eroded landforms. The crater at the upper part of the image shows an ejecta blanket winnowed by the wind.
