Layering West of Arabia Terra

Dunes and Bedrock
Sometimes, we acquire an image for the simple reason of getting either more coverage of an area, and/or to complete a mosaic of a particular spot.
Arabia Terra is one of our favorite regions to image, mainly due to the diversity and beauty of its layered deposits.
Layers in a Valley Wall
Also captured in a Context Camera image, the objective of this observation is to examine a beautiful view of many layers in a valley wall near Auqakuh Vallis.
A Scarp in the Arabia Region
Pictured here appears to be the edge of a blast radius of a large meteorite impact crater with smaller and more recent cratering interrupting its circumference.
Layers in Blocks
The objective of this observation is to examine layers exposed in small blocks and in a butte in eastern Arabia Terra, in the Northern Hemisphere of Mars.
This un-named crater in southwestern Arabia Terra contains a treasure! Layered sediments are the key to the puzzle of Martian history. They tell us about the conditions that existed when the sediments were deposited, and how they changed over time.
