Just did a little Mars Image surfing that I hadnt been at in a while.
Found these crater remnants a bit more "uniform" than in many other places.
Seems worth noting and looking at.
Any insight ideas on this landscape would be most helpful.


Heres the Mars Google Coordinates as well:
Lat - 19°48'25.09"S
Long - 8°57'7.40"E

I think what you're looking at is the eroded remnants of the central crater peak. There might be some hi-res Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images of that site, I'll try to find them.

[Edit] Here is the imagery from CTX (Context camera on MRO) which you can enable in Google Earth:

HiRISE camera on MRO took an image nearby:

They call is bedrock exposures, and looking at all these images I agree. Just lots of erosion and sand dunes.

I posted this area of Interest for its geology and the Type of impactors that would have caused this "effect" or patterning,debris field ,etc,,,,,..
Obviously its not the lost world I,m mainly interested in the forms that these huge impactors create and what different materials make up which an so on.
Thanks for the above comprehensive post and pics.
Judging by the "pot" marks all over the surface of Mars she was in one heck uva Fire storm.
The odd landscape at times is quite intriguing.
