  NASA - Chasma Boreale in the North Polar Region
The region in the image, Chasma Boreale, is a valley several kilometers or miles deep that cuts about 400 kilometers (about 250 miles) into the edge of the cap.
The chasma floor is cratered, and in the foreground it is covered by dunes that are outliers of a north polar sand sea that surrounds the polar cap.
Second, both parts of the basal unit are depleted in ice, except for triangle-shaped regions on the side of the scarp.

  Polar region - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Earth's polar regions are the areas of the globe surrounding the poles, north of the Arctic circle, or south of the Antarctic Circle.
They are characterised by the polar climate, extremely cold temperatures, heavy glaciation, and extreme variations in daylight hours, with 24 hour daylight in summer (the midnight sun), and permanent darkness at mid-winter.
The North Pole and South Pole being the centres, these regions are dominated by the polar ice caps, resting respectively on ocean and the continent of Antarctica.

 ESA Portal - Decoding Mars’s Cryptic Region
The mystery deepened in the late 1990s when new observations showed that the temperature of the cryptic region was close to -135º Celsius.
So, scientists developed the idea that a one-metre-thick slab of clear carbon dioxide ice covered the cryptic region, allowing the dark surface underneath to be seen.
Langevin wants to observe the cryptic region close to the spring equinox, before the Sun has touched it and started the venting process.
