Beautiful streamlined islands and narrow gorges were carved by fast-flowing water pounding through a small, plateau region near the southeastern margin of the vast Valles Marineris canyon system. Osuga Valles is an outflow channel that emanates from a region of chaotic terrain at the edge of Eos Chaos to the west. Such landscape is dominated by randomly oriented and heavily eroded blocks of terrain...
Rabe Crater May 15, 2014 Black dunes on the Red Planet.



These dark dunes are composed of fine volcanic ash, which is also visible as a dark layer clinging to the sides of the depressions in the crater floor. The ash is carried out of this layer by the wind, accumulating elsewhere to produce impressive dune fields. Referred to as 'basalt dunes' due to their volcanic mineral composition, these formations are particularly frequent on Mars....
Atlantis Chaos June 12, 2014 Chaos in the Atlantis basin.

Hydraotes Movie Oct 16, 2014 Flight over the canyon-area Hydraotes Chaos.



Among the most interesting landforms on Mars are features referred to as 'chaotic terrain'. Dozens or even hundreds of isolated mountains are scattered in these extensive regions.

Phlegra Montes Feb 19, 2015 Phlegra Montes metamorphosed by climate change?



The mountain massif of Phlegra Montes extends into the northern lowlands of Mars like a long, slightly curved salient. Stretching for hundreds of kilometres, this alignment of numerous mountains, rolling hills and ridges lies to the east of the volcano Hecates Tholus in the Elysium volcanic region. This geological formation provides insights into the metamorphosis of a landscape marked by changes to the Martian climate millions of years ago...
Cydonia Mensae Mar 12, 2015 Was the north of Mars once covered by an ocean?



The transition from the highlands to the lowlands follows a narrow, geologically varied zone referred to as the 'dichotomy boundary'. The Cydonia region lies slightly to the north of the dichotomy boundary, within the plain Acidalia Planitia. There are numerous mesa-like structures and smaller flat-topped mountains here – the remains of an eroded highland are distributed over large parts of this region.
Arabia Terra Apr 23, 2015 Crater Generations in Arabia Terra on Mars



On our neighbouring planet Mars, it is mainly wind – through its force and the dust and sand particles it carries – that shapes the terrain structures, wearing them away over the course of millions of years. In the early history of the Red Planet, flowing water also contributed to this. It can be seen, for example, in the numerous craters with varied degrees of erosion in the Arabia Terra region...
Siloe Patera May 21, 2015 Siloe Patera − a supervolcano on Mars?



At present, the Siloe Patera construct in the Martian highlands is the cause of much debate among scientists. Is Siloe Patera actually the remains of a supervolcano? There is evidence to suggest this − but also evidence against it. It is a current example of an interesting geoscientific debate...
