This observation from NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows an interesting crater floor with what appear to be inverted channels, rounded lobe-like landforms, and light-toned layered deposits along the southern portion of the crater wall. High resolution can help study the layers, with an enhanced-color image showing us any variations in composition between those light-toned layers and the darker-toned surfaces.
