About this image

This VIS image looks at flows at visible wavelengths. This image illustrates the very rough surface texture of young flows, the overlapping nature of lava flows, and how the margins of overlapping flows trap windblown sand and dust. Note the subdued texture of the flow at the top of the image; not only does this flow contain more dust than the younger flow, but it also contains more impact craters.
