Re: Mud slide in Endurace crater exposes springs water

[color=#000000:post_uid0]This looks like a mud slide happened, and exposed on, and off again springs from beneath. The material looks like it fell from above or sluffed of the wall when the soil became saturated from beneath where the springs are now located. I have seen many such mud slides here in the mountains with trees still growing on them. Of course there are no trees here but the rocks from below sure look like they slid from above.Mud slides do look like this.

Re: Mud slide in Endurace crater exposes springs water

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Could this not have happened due to wind eroding the rock and blowing fine dust down the slope from above?

There was a young lady named Bright.
Whose speed was far faster than light;
She set out one day
in a relative way
And returned on the previous night.

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Don't think so that is a pretty big slump of land that fell from above in two places.[/color:post_uid0]
