This image is based on a request to retarget a site to create a stereo pair. Adjacent images to the east show a series of buttes with very little stratigraphic overlap. The region in this observation have long sequences of strata potentially recording the full paleo-stratigraphic column that can help us learn more about the ancient environment and how it formed.
