Windswept Dunes

June 16, 2014
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows small, dark, north polar sand dunes and attendant wind streaks located near 76.7°N, 317.6°W. The dominant winds responsible for these features blow from the southwest (lower left). The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across. The scene is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
