Exhuming Craters

July 30, 2013
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a wind-eroded landscape in the Amazonis Mensa region of far western Tharsis. Two meteor impact craters that formed in--and then were buried by--rock are now found in a state of partial-exhumation from within the wind-eroded material. MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-1168, 30 July 2005
