The "crepes" are really quite lovely. In parts the white deposit seems to morph into pinkish / tan. I would punt for a thin lamination of calcium sulphate with impurities.

An invaluable source of day to day news about Curiosity activities has been the USGS blog at:

https://astrogeology.usgs.gov/

It is mirrored at JPL at this URL:

https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/mission/mars-...ission-updates/

- and at the moment that is being updated while the USGS site is not. Just in case anyone is looking for new updates. I know I do every day.

Another periodic check of the deck mounted Rover Environmental Monitoring Station (REMS) Ultra-Violet Sensor (UVS) housing suggests a small increase in fine dust levels on the lenses of the 6 UV sensors.

EDIT, a few more images added...

Reprojected hazcams for the sol 1676 drive. They should project to a wider angle than this suggests, but my ad hoc method produces a narrower image. Anyway, a very clear location comes from this.

There's been a change in the ownership of the blog. Ashwin told me: "FYI we have changed our blogging from the USGS to JPL. The original 3 authors still participate, but we’ve recruited several more. The posts are now natively hosted at JPL (same web page) instead of mirroring USGS."

Also, the JPL site contains archives all the way back to just before landing. At USGS the archiving arrangement was not easy to get into.
