o Sand Dune Catch and Release

  Sand dunes within within craters, raise the question: do they form
  from sandy materials within the craters, or are they traps for dunes
  traveling in their path?

o Waiting for Dust Devils

  Dust devils are identified in images both by their cloudy form and
  the shadow their cloud casts on the surface.

o Moving Mass Material on a Mesa

  This observation appears to show some type of mass movement of material
  down the wall of a mesa in Deuteronilus Mensae.

o Blockfall on the North Polar Layered Deposits

  The slope in this image is steep and fractured, and a large chunk of dusty
  ice has tumbled down and broken apart.
All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
