NASA Mars Odyssey THEMIS Image: Hebrus Vallis

[ Find on map: CGI version ]
This image shows a portion of Hebrus Vallis, a channel system located south of
Granicus Vallis. Like Granicus Vallis, Hebrus Vallis originates close to the
base of the Elysium volcanic complex. The criss-crossing of channels seen in
the image is not typical for fluvial systems, indicating that this channel system
was likely formed by volcanic activity.

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.
