NASA Mars Odyssey THEMIS Image: Crater Interior
Context image credit: NASA/Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) Team
[ Find on map: CGI version ]
The large peak observed in this THEMIS image is the central uplift of an impact crater that formed by inward and upward movement of material below the crater floor during the crater-forming event and is not due to long-term slow adjustment of crater materials. Evidence of modification to the post-impact surface is observed throughout the image as materials are being eroded and stripped from the crater floor.

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.
