Radar View of Rock Layering on Mars
This color image shows a portion of the southeast inner wall of Zunil, a geologically recent (less than about 10 million years old) well-preserved 10-km impact crater.

The color and albedo patterns indicate that a landslide occurred here very recently--too recently to have been re-covered by dust. The landslide could have been triggered by a Marsquake or a small impact event.
