... formation—which unconformably overlies the Mount Sharp group and represents conditions postdating the exhumation of Aeolis Mons, is characterized by accumulation of aeolian strata under arid conditions. Water was largely absent near the surface during its deposition. At the Feòrachas outcrop, discovery...

... the northeast to the southwest and lies along Curiosity’s traverse to Aeolis Mons. Here we present the first evidence of recent aeolian activity in the form of ripple and dune migration, and further estimate wind directions within the dune field through analysis of ripple and dune morphologies and the Mars...

... therein; Brož et al., 2021 ). The variably olivine-enriched eolian sands in nearby Gale crater are likely not sourced from the olivine-poor Stimson eolian sandstone ( Rampe et al., 2018 ). Sand on Aeolis Mons most likely comes from the upper mound, a possible MFF outlier ( Thomson et al., 2011...

..., including Aeolis Mons at Gale Crater, a location that will soon be sampled by the Mars Science Laboratory. Our results confirm that not only do ILDs erode quickly, but significant volumes of material have been removed and transported away from the mound. Our retreat rates also confirm that these ILDs have...
