Active erosion

Only very few craters can be found on the surface. This indicates that that wind erosion has been the latest stage of erosional processes acting here. In the upper right part of the image, some few impact craters are visible, possibly showing the underlying older rocks that were draped by the MFF. The MFF is believed to be the largest sedimentary deposits on the planet and also the largest single dust source on Mars.
