About this image

Located on the rim of Chia Crater, this smaller crater contains a multitude of dark slope streaks. These features are assumed to represent down slope movements of material, either a process that removes a dusty top later to reveal dark rocky material below, or one that darkens part of the slope due to surface or near surface flows of a briny volatile.
