Becquerel Outcrops

September 4, 2013
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows layered, light-toned outcrops of sedimentary rock in Becquerel Crater. The outcrops are juxtaposed against a dark-toned substrate which occupies the upper (northern) portion of the image. Dark dunes and patches of windblown sand superpose both the light-toned rock and darker substrate; dark sand trapped among the layers of sedimentary rock enhances their appearance. MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-1575, 4 September 2006
