The location of this landslide was submitted as an observation candidate in Oct 2008 and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera photographed a strip of the slump area of this slide (See http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_010461_1845). However, the mudflow at the base of the side was not included. The nearby smaller landslide mentioned above was identified as a landslide and was nicely imaged by HiRISE 04 November 2007. See “Landslide in Shalbatana Vallas” http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_005965_1855 and again on 10 Jan 2009 (see http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_011529_1855).
