About this image

The channels and impact craters observed in this THEMIS image taken near Warrego Valles have been eroded and filled with sediment after their formation. Many of the impact crater floors have interesting grooves and lineations that may reflect the interaction of ice and surface materials. Slumping observed within channels in the dissected terrains also points to modification by volatile driven processes.
