Secrets of Schröteri
December 5, 2012
Vallis Schröteri is a magnificent sinuous rille and of particular interest its inner rille, which diverges from the primary rille near the arrow. This nested form indicates that multiple eruptive events occurred or there was a large change in the volume of a single eruption over time.
