About this image

Today's VIS image shows an unnamed crater in Terra Sabaea. The central peak of the crater has been surrounded by a deposit of material that is easily eroded, as shown by the wind eroded features on the south side of the deposit. Several craters in this region have large deposits of materials on the crater floor. These deposits postdate the formation of the craters, and have themselves by eroded over time. It is very likely that wind played a roll in the deposition of materials as well as the subsequent erosion.
