Planet Four Talk
would love to call these dendritic patterns even though they are really from thermal operations.
Wow. more polygons and are those light sources or just highly reflective?
Some of that cool polygonal terrain in this one.
These dark areas actually look more like shadows than blotches, to me.
While some of these don't stand out, there is a color change.
Not my number one choice of places to walk my dog.
A lot of these seem to be shadow features, but I'm not sure.
sun low between 4 and 5 oclock makes a lot of this shadow. some still too dark to explain that way.
enough questions/notes and I may solve mars for you. note: compression ridges seem to have direction in this particular image.
my questions/comments may apply to any/all of the images I view.
excuse the pile of questions. very hot, high iron, high gassing basalt producing very fine ash. random, not on rift lines all the time.
of carbon meteors. Ice/snow with some carbon, etc., yes a few large ones that break up badly?
almost too much to mark. if there were carbon meteors in this abundance, some might be angle hit or downslope. I've just never heard
acne. lots of blackheads. carbon meteors exploding on impact and blowing sometimes?
why a few fans among a lot of blotches? wind blowing soot?
compression ridges marked by blown carbon? rift zone venting?
or dikes and exposed stocks?
a brain cell or a fungus? It is big, anyway.
carbon meteor or carbon volcano, low/no wind? collected against compression ridges.
Mixed #boulder field and #pock marks
A lot of these look like what I might call #bubble vents
looks like lava pinches, but lower left is like a #drainage
These look like they are mostly shadows.
this one REALLY looks like ferrous oxide pumice
opaque bathroom window glass, maybe?
all but one seems to be blown NW, but about half seem to have had a change in prevailing winds to the North about halfway thru their growth.
looks like pillow lava like in the pass on Hawaii.
looks like a bunch of whitehead pimples. I don't know if the white spots are exposed rock or something else.
Looks like a boulder field with dark marks
many rift zones. only way to mark was in groups
