About this image

The multiple landslides in this VIS image occur along a steep channel wall. Note the large impact crater in the context image. The formation of the crater may have initially weakened that area of the surface prior to channel formation. The surface of these landslides is different from the giant Valles Marineris landslides, which have small ridges that radiate from the base of the slope to the margins of the slide. The surface features on these landslides appears to be small wavy ridges parallel to the end of the slide.
