About this image

At first glance, the dust devil streaks observed in this THEMIS image of the martian northern plains may look similar to many other images. However, what makes this THEMIS image so interesting are the many streaks that trend over hills, mounds, and valleys. Many of the dust devil streaks previously observed occur in very flat and dusty regions. This unique image gives hints to the dynamic nature of the dust devil streak formational process.
