|Mars Global Surveyor MOC Images Archived (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)|
This site features two images taken by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) narrow angle (high resolution) camera and "colorized" by applying the colors of Mars obtained by the MOC wide angle cameras. Both pictures show gullies on the walls of two different meteor impact craters that occur in Newton Basin in Sirenum Terra, Mars. These pictures, from MOC extended mission subphases E07 through E12, were acquired August 2001 through January 2002. This site also has links to MOC data from E07 through E12, including many observations of the 2001 planet-enshrouding dust storm events, springtime retreat of the south polar seasonal frost cap, hundreds of images designed to monitor the retreat of carbon dioxide ice cliffs in the south polar residual cap, images obtained to look for changes and stereo views of gullies, and pictures of proposed and potential Mars Exploration Rover landing sites. Several previous MGS MOC releases highlighted these diverse E07-E12 observations. All of the MOC images can be seen via another link to the MOC Gallery.
