From a distance, the floor of this crater looks like a giant honeycomb or spider web. The intersecting shapes, or polygons, commonly occur in the northern lowlands of Mars.

This observation shows a portion of the wall (light-toned material) and floor of a trough in the Acheron Fossae region of Mars. Many dark and light-toned slope streaks are visible on the wall of the trough surrounded by dunes.

What triggered a Martian landslide? Landslides are common features in canyons on both Earth and Mars, and they happen the same way.

Dunes are often found on crater floors. In the winter, at high northern latitudes, the terrain is covered by carbon-dioxide ice (dry ice).

This picture was taken during the Martian summer with only small patches of ice remaining at the surface; they show up as bright, somewhat blue, spots on slopes that provide some shading from the Sun.
Sand Dunes Near the North Pole
Full Resolution
This crater, formed in 2008, exposes shallow, clean ice that is not uncommon in the middle-to-high latitudes on Mars.
Icy New Impact

This unnamed impact crater is about 8 kilometers in diameter and contains numerous gullies.
