Between July 12 and 18, 2018, the Rear Hazcam Left captured the seven images that make up this sequence where it is possible to analyze the evolution over time of the tracks left by the rover itself.
Note the way in which the tracks degrade, distorting and flattening already in the first three days!
In addition to the tracks of Curiosity, the rest of the landscape shows small variations very interesting to understand what happens on the surface during a big global dust storm…
Personally I have more the impression of a wet and cloudy environment rather than “stormy” and “dusty”, given the total absence of dust deposits around the wheel of Curiosity, as well as the total absence of dust on the protective glass placed in front of the lens of the Rear Hazcam Left.
