Light-Toned and Possible Hydrated Materials in Gullied Crater

July 15, 2012
This observation shows a gullied crater in the Southern mid-latitudes with light-toned deposits near the center of its floor, and two areas of collapsed terrain at the northern and southern edges of the crater floor.

Data from the CRISM instrument--also onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter--tentatively show a minerals containing chemically-bound water in the "chaotic" areas.
