Inside A Trough

June 21, 2013
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a high resolution view of the floor and walls of a trough located west of the Elysium Mons volcano. The trough cuts through layered and dust-mantled rock. Large boulders and windblown ripples, mostly covered with a blanket of dust, can be seen on the trough floor. MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-1102, 25 May 2005
