Chaos terrains on Mars generally consist of
irregular groups of large blocks, some tens of kilometers across and a hundred meters high. The tilted and flat topped blocks form depressions hundreds of meters deep.
A chaotic region can be recognized by a rat's nest of mesas and buttes, chopped through with valleys.
Mesas are elevated areas of land with a flat top and sides that are usually steep cliffs.
Buttes are isolated hills with steep sides and a small, relatively flat top and are smaller then mesas.
Chaos terrain on Mars is distinctive, nothing on Earth compares to it.
Eos Chaos for instance, to land there seems very challenging, but could it still be done on some locations within this fast area ?
Are there geological features that denotes a safe place to land ?
