NASA Mars Odyssey THEMIS Image: Channel Wall Landslides

[ Find on map: CGI version ]
The multiple landslides in this VIS image occur along a steep channel
wall. Note the large impact crater in the context image. The formation
of the crater may have initially weakened that area of the surface
prior to channel formation.

Note: this THEMIS visual image has not been radiometrically nor geometrically calibrated for this preliminary release. An empirical correction has been performed to remove instrumental effects. A linear shift has been applied in the cross-track and down-track direction to approximate spacecraft and planetary motion. Fully calibrated and geometrically projected images will be released through the Planetary Data System in accordance with Project policies at a later time.
