Hesperia Planum Region

This image shows part of the Hesperia Planum region, taken by Mars color camera (MCC) on board India's Mars Orbiter Spacecraft.

The image was taken on 31-01-2015 at a spatial resolution of 58m from an altitude of 1132km. Wrinkle ridges and craters of smaller diameters are clearly seen in this image. Wrinkle ridges on planetary surface are formed due to compressional stress regime. Ridge means linear/ curvilinear elongated raised structure.
