Asset Details

  • Description:
  • Interpreted stratigraphic column for a section of the Gale Crater mound. Where marked, bed thicknesses are measured from HiRISE DTMs. Mineralogical interpretations are based on CRISM data, though not all individual beds observed in HiRISE images are resolved in CRISM images. A group of thin (<7 m) recessive beds in the lower member contains clays (green), whereas the middle member exhibits sulfate and very weak clay signatures (orange). Sulfate‐bearing beds (blue) are generally thicker than clay‐bearing beds and are found throughout the upper member. Gray and white beds in the morphology column are qualitative indicators of general changes in albedo.
