Channels in Phlegra Montes

The objective of this observation is to determine the nature of a group of what appears to be channels that trend in a west-east direction. There is also a mound with a mantle that appears to have layers.

Also visible in a Context Camera image, pictures like this can help us understand the fluvial and climate history of ancient Mars.
