This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a layered mound, buried under a thin coating of material hard enough to have been cut by shallow fractures, on the floor of the giant Argyre Basin. The material beneath the basin floor is layered; this is an eroded (and then thinly-buried) remnant of some of that layered material.
