About this image

Today's VIS image show part of the floor of Eberswalde Crater. This crater is host to a large delta, a feature formed when a channel enters standing water and the velocity slows, depositing the sediment carried by the water. The complexity of the crater floor indicates many layers of materials, perhaps deposited when Eberswalde Crater was a lake. The Eberswalde Crater delta is one of the best preserved on Mars.
