The following image from NASA shows a boulder-covered landslide along a canyon wall on Mars. Landslides occur when steep slopes fail, sending a mass of soil and rock to flow downhill, leaving behind a scarp at the top of the slope. A scarp is a very steep bank or slope.

The image was taken by the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on March 19, 2014.
