The Solar System: Martian Landforms
Do the following:
• Read and perform the following pages.
• Make sure you provide full and complete answers. While a few questions can be answered with short answers, others require longer explanations.
• Be sure to include any images you are required to provide.

Martian Landforms-Answer Sheet:
1. Navigate to the HiRISE website. Click on "About" in the upper right of the webpage. In your own words, explain what HiRISE is, where it is, and what it does. How much Martian surface is in each pixel of image (i.e. what is the resolution)?

2. Choose a video that interests you. The video must be labeled with a "Subtitles" label. This means the video has narration explaining the feature. It must also have a link to a webpage about the image (sometimes found under "Show More").

3. Paste a map location of where your image is in relation to the surface of Mars. You can do this is going to the bottom of your image's webpage, and zooming out of the map all the way. Take a screenshot of that area and paste it below, and keep it large enough to make out the small white dot at the center. Draw an arrow to point at the location of your image, which is the small white dot (Insert Tab->Shape->Arrow). You can zoom in to the document to get a clearer look.

4. What is the general area that you image was taken in? Use online resources or your book's map to be as specific as possible. Northern lowlands? Southern highlands? Equatorial region? Near a major feature like the Tharsis bulge? North polar region? Southern polar region?

5. Under the description of the video, click on the link to the HiRISE page that describes your video. You may have to click "Show More" to see the link.

6. What is the "science theme" of your chosen video/picture? It should be listed in directly underneath the title of the image. You can click on the science theme to get more information about it. Read about what the science theme is, and in your own words, summarize it below. Here is a list of all the HiRISE science themes, in case you're not able to click through for a description of yours. You may not have a science theme listed on your image; in this case, choose the one that best fits your image and describe the theme.

7. In your own words, describe your image below in a short paragraph. Don't copy and paste OR plagiarize the HiRISE description. Use your own words to describe what we have observed on Mars with this image, how it fits in with its science theme, and which questions it might answer, or which questions it may raise. If there are geologic terms you don't recognize, so some research on those terms and explain them in plain language. This should be two paragraphs.

8. Find another student's video on the Padlet that has a similar feature or science theme as yours. You can click on the magnifying glass to make the video larger when you play it. Paste the video URL here and explain in a short paragraph what similarities it has with your chosen image. What differences are there?

Answer:
The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) is a camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The purpose of HiRISE is to capture state-of-the-art images of Mars’ surface features. The highest resolving capability of the HiRISE camera is 30 centimeters per pixel.

2. Choose a video that interests you. The video must be labeled with a "Subtitles" label. This means the video has narration explaining the feature. It must also have a link to a webpage about the image (sometimes found under "Show More"). See an example below. If it doesn't have a link...
