Mars: features like melting iceberg on Earth

When doing research and study of some features and images taken by HiRISE camera, I have found this interesting picture.

When you will closely look at the border of the white round-shaped frozen carbon dioxide at the bottom, you will notice the small channels above it. This definitely looks like water channels created by melted ice from icebergs on Earth. Isn’t it interesting? I will take a deeper look at this later, now I am pretty busy with some other stuff. If you have any ideas, then please leave a comment below. All information will help to study this.
