Dunes in Noachis Terra Region of Mars
This enhanced-color  image shows sand dunes trapped in an impact crater in Noachis Terra,  Mars. Dunes and sand ripples of various shapes and sizes display the  natural beauty created by physical processes. The area covered in the  image is about six-tenths of a mile (1 kilometer) across.  Sand  dunes are among the most widespread wind-formed features on Mars. Their  distribution and shapes are affected by changes in wind direction and  wind strength. Patterns of dune erosion and deposition provide insight  into the sedimentary history of the surrounding terrain.  The  image is one product from an observation by the High Resolution Imaging  Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera taken on Nov. 29, 2011, at 42 degrees  south latitude, 42 degrees east longitude.
