Close-ups of textures in the delta-deposits after sampling or abrasion

 

         
Sol-452: First abraded spot on a piece of fine-grained ash deposits on this ground

        
Sol-463. This is a spot by the rover exposed in the fine-grained ash deposit for laser shots

           
Sol-471. In the second abraded spot, the bright inclusion in the ash cannot be overlooked. So far it is still not clear what it is (High Ca-Pyroxene ?)

           
Sol-484. Third abraded spot. It appears to be a typical composition of ash particles


This is an example of a comparable terrestrial volcanic breccia

           
Sol-504. Fourth abraded spot in consolidated and very fine-grained ash deposit.

 

         
Sol-490: First drill core near abraded spot of sol 484

   
Sol-495: Second drill core near abraded spot of sol-484

   
Sol-509:
Third drill core near abraded spot of sol-504

 


 

  Sol-516: Fourth drill core near abraded spot of sol-504
