MSL landing sites

The press release on the final candidates is at:

"The sites, alphabetically, are: Eberswalde, where an ancient river deposited a delta in a possible lake; Gale, with a mountain of stacked layers including clays and sulfates; Holden, a crater containing alluvial fans, flood deposits, possible lake beds and clay-rich deposits; and Mawrth, which shows exposed layers containing at least two types of clay."

Details on each of the candidate sites (and the ones that didn't make the cut) can be found at:
