Meanders and Tributaries in Ridge Form in the Zephyria Region

Meanders and Tributaries in Ridge Form in the Zephyria Region

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter: Hi-RISE, NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona


The smaller, narrow ridges in this image are yardangs, which are ridges created by wind erosion. The inverted, meandering channel snaking through the image is caused by a river bed that meandered due to changes in topography.
