Located on the margin of Zephyria Planum, today's image shows the effect the wind has had on the surface of Mars. Loose materials have been removed and semi-consolidated materials have been eroded into narrow hill forms.

Note: Zephyria Planum is a peninsula-shaped lobe of upraised land that extends to the northwest from the border terrain separating the southern highlands from Elysium Planitia.
