MARS RECONNAISSANCE ORBITER HIRISE IMAGES
January 21, 2015
o Crater Slopes: The Power of a Repeat Image
Repeat coverage actually serves a special purpose, such
as detecting seasonal changes.
o Gullies in Liu Hsin Crater
By comparing to gullies that are just 20 kilometers away,
we may be able to determine the factors that affect their size.
o Southeast Rim of Hale Crater
The central peak of Hale Crater is a common target for recurring
slope lineae, but an image of the rim might help us see if they
o Triple-Crater in Elysium Planitia
This image shows a triple impact crater that probably formed when a
binary--or even triple--asteroid struck the surface.
