Abstract: <p/> 11 January 2006 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows light-toned, layered rock outcrops in Eos Chaos, located near the east end of the Valles Marineris trough system. The outcrops occur in the form of a distinct, circular butte (upper half of image) and a high slope (lower half of image). The rocks might be sedimentary rocks, similar to those found elsewhere exposed in the Valles Marineris system and the chaotic terrain to the east of the region. <p/> <i>Location near</i>: 12.9oS, 49.5oW <i>Image width</i>: ~3 km (~1.9 mi) <i>Illumination from</i>: lower left <i>Season</i>: Southern Summer
