o Banded TARs in Iapygia

  The tropics of Mars are commonly littered with small bright
  ripples that were somehow shaped by the wind.

o Chaos in Eridania Basin

  Eridania is the name of topographically enclosed basin located
  in the Southern highlands of Mars that has been suggested to be
  the site of a large ancient lake or inland sea.

o Mysterious Light-Toned Deposit in Vinogradov Crater

  The southeastern floor of Vinogradov Crater is covered with several
  mysterious light-toned, sub-meter scale "blobs" that lack obvious

o Overlapping Lobate Lava Flows in Daedalia Planum

  The high-resolution of HiRISE images allows for reconstruction of
  complex volcanic surfaces including geological relationships within
  a flow field.
