Gale Crater Candidate Landing Site

 
 

Dawn is characterizing the stratigraphy and history of depositional environments in Gale Crater.  Results to date suggest that diverse environments are represented in the stratigraphy as well as the geomorphology of Gale Crater.  Most of her ideas are documented in videos made in Crusta rather than as text, so please see this YouTube play list.  Also check out the Dawn on Mars blog for MSL updates.
