Hale Crater on Mars

Hale Crater on Mars

NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona

This image shows the central mountains of Hale Crater on Mars, one for four locations on the planet where scientists confirmed the existence of flowing saltwater rivers called recurring slope lineae (RSL). These active flows are seasonal and extend downhill from bedrock cliffs, mostly towards the northwest (upper left). This image was acquired in middle summer when RSL are most active in the southern mid latitudes.
