|Figure 2. A closer look with at the alcoves and lineated valley fill seen in Fig 1. The locations of these THEMIS & higher resolution MOC images are marked in Fig. 1a.
a)Four alcoves cutting into the plateau at the bottom of the picture, each with a lobes flowing down and outwards into the adjacent lineated valley fill. Note how these lobes merge trends of the lineated valley fill on the valley floor tothte left.
b)East-facing alcoves with multiple concentric-ridged lobes extending east and converging with the lineated valley fill on the valley floor
c)An even closer look at the deformed ridges and pitting on the valley floor of Fig. 2b.
