Caption: Mars surface deposits. Satellite image showing diverse chaotic deposits with a wide range of colours in the Melas Chasma canyon, on the surface of Mars. The deposits are distinctive, with both unique colours and small-scale textures such as fracture patterns. These are probably sedimentary rocks, transported and deposited in water or air. The original layers may have been jumbled in a landslide, whilst dark or reddish sand dunes cover some of the bedrock. Imaged by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) satellite.
