Mars - Bedrock Exposures in Crater Wall




ESP_025570_2330

This mid-latitude (53 degrees North) crater appears well-preserved, with a clear ejecta blanket and well-defined rim. Bedrock exposures are visible near the top of the rim. Studying this site can yield information about the underlying terrain within this region.

Additionally, HiRISE images show small-scale features formed through modification and degradation processes; for example, few-meter-wide cracks that run perpendicular to the slope are likely formed through slumping and periglacial processes.

Some of the "Bedrock" appears to be geometrically shaped with 90 degree angles? umm
