This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows windblown sand dunes in Lohse Crater in Noachis Terra near 43.8S, 16.8W. The winds responsible for these dunes blew largely from the lower left (southwest) toward the upper right (northeast). The picture covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across, and is illuminated by sunlight from the upper left.
