This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a variety of materials found on the floor of an impact crater northwest of Hellas Planitia. The discontinuous, dark-toned ridges, typically running diagonally across the scene, are windblown ripples which overlie light-toned rock that is heavily fractured and cratered.
