11900 thumbnail picture
Large blocks that have sloughed off the wall of Phoenix Canyon.

11901 thumbnail picture
Evidence of blocks of rock sloughing off the walls of Phoenix Canyon. The large X , the snake-like pattern below it, and the + pattern to its left, almost look like hieroglyphics although formed by natural processes. Curiously, the sloughed off area does not have the ubiquitous hole pattern of the rock below.

Perhaps a small sediment flow but probably caused by the thrusters on the ROV.
20141004T153802Z
