  • MARS GLOBAL SURVEYORDunes and Dust Devil Tracks MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-82622 August 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a suite of dark sand dunes that formed in winds blowing from east (right) to west (left), along with smaller, lighter-toned ripples and many dark dust devil tracks. The dust devil tracks indicate movement from a variety of directions, while the dunes only indicate winds from the east. In the lower left quarter of the image, dune sand has flowed around a layered rock obstacle. This scene is located near 19.9N, 280.5W. The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across and sunlight illuminates the scene from the lower left. __________Bunge Dunes MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-82521 August 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows low albedo (dark), windblown sand dunes on the floor of Bunge Crater, located near 33.8S, 48.9W. The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left. __________Rabe Dunes MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-824, 20 August 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows dark sand dunes and layered rock outcrops in Rabe Crater, located near 43.8S, 325.1W. The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across and sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left. __________Aligned Defrosting Dunes MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-82117 August 2004 This July 2004 Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a group of aligned barchan sand dunes in the martian north polar region. At the time, the dunes were covered with seasonal frost, but the frost had begun to sublime away, leaving dark spots and dark outlines around the dunes. The surrounding plains exhibit small, diffuse spots that are also the result of subliming seasonal frost. This northern spring image, acquired on a descending ground track (as MGS was moving north to south on the "night" side of Mars) is located near 78.8N, 34.8W. The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across and sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left. MARS 2001 ODYSSEY

    Hecate Tholus (Released 20 August 2004) 20040820A.jpgHecate Tholus Tholus: small dome-shaped mountain or hill Hecate: Goddess of the crossroads, ghosts and witchcraft. She has three heads (a dog, a snake, and a horse) that face three different directions. She is served by 2 ghost hounds.. Hecates Tholus is a volcano located north of Elysium Mons. The image above is a mosaic of daytime IR images. Nomenclature Fact of the Day: Many features on Io, a volcanically active moon of Jupiter, are named for fire, sun, volcano, and thunder goods and goddesses - or for people and places from Dante's Inferno. __________

    Tantalus Fluctus (Released 19 August 2004) 20040819a.jpgTantalus Fluctus Fluctus: flow terrain Tantalus: son of Zeus; King of Sipylos. He cut up and stewed the flesh of his son to serve at a feast with the gods. For this crime his family was cursed for five generations. The Tantalus Fluctus region of Mars is comprised of multiple lava flows. The margin of one of these flows is indicated by red arrows on the VIS image above. Nomenclature Fact of the Day: Three landform types that do not use a descriptor as part of their name are craters, eruptive centers, and large ring features. __________

    Hydraotes Chaos (Released 18 August 2004) 20040818A.jpgHydraotes Chaos Chaos: distinctive area of broken terrain Hydraotes: Alexander the Great attacked the Mallains on the banks of the Hydraotes River (today's Ravi River) during his conquest of India. Hydraotes Chaos is typical of chaos regions on Mars. Note the break up of the plateau into smaller mesas separated by deep valleys. In some chaos, the mesas also seem to get fractured into smaller and smaller segments. No
