About this image

The top portion of this infrared image shows part of Hydraotes Chaos. At the bottom of the image are several landslides along a channel wall. With the dust cover of the landslides and the channel floor being similar, the temperatures of both features are similar. It is more difficult to 'see' these landslides in the infrared than with the VIS camera.
