<http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/index.html> Curiosity has taken some
high resolution images of Mount Sharp and the dark areas between them. This
information provided is quite interesting providing new support the
> theory of Martian Geology. The dark area to the south of Curiosityresembles soil in the Meridiani
> Planum region supporting the other evidence that this area too was onceflooded. It also shows that the clearly areas are clearly at a lower
elevation than where Curiosity actually landed.
The rock layers on Mount Sharp here look like what would be expected from
rapid deposition of the layers including little if any evidence of erosion
between layers. What is also evident is that the erosion that carved this
out seems o have been done by water flowing over this part of Mount Sharp
including downward gullies resulting from flowing water. In fact even JPL
has commented on how similar these features are to those found in the Grand
Canyon <http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA16098> here on Earth
which was carved by water. This actually supports evidence from the
V.html> last article that this what happened.
