Another feature of Martian Geography is the southern hemisphere of the planet, which gets covered in a layer of carbon-dioxide ice each spring. This shot shows sections of clean ice as well as those peppered by dust smears. The smears are created when the lower levels of ice melt. This creates gas which evaporates through cracks, dragging dust from below along with it.
