Small valleys in the
southern part of the
ellipse
Long/lat: 341.15E, 23.85N
Rational:
Sediments deposited in this partly
filled valley may be of utmost interest
in the concentration and preservation
of possible organic matter.
Morphology & mineralogy:
The two valleys are partly filled by the
dark capping unit and dark dunes,
they follow the steepest slope of the
present topography, and may be two
separated remnants of a single ancient
valley.
The valleys seem to have cut the Alphyllosilicate bearing rocks.
MSL tasks: At large scale, seek
possible fluvial sediments exposed in
the valleys. At small scale, study the
grain structure, the mineralogy and
chemistry of the rocks on valley floors.

Valleys go from the highest part to the lowest part of this area, they may have been one single
valley, cut by erosion and/or deposits.
