Eroded Sedimentary Rock

April 30, 2013
This high resolution Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows eroded, layered sedimentary rock exposures in an unnamed western Arabia Terra crater at 8°N, 7°W. The dark material is windblown sand; much of the erosion of these layers may have also been caused by wind. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the left. MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-372, 26 May 2003
