About this image

Today's VIS image is of a different part of Olympica Fossae from the previous image. In this region lava channels dominate. The complex interaction of volcanic and tectonic processes is illustrated by the central feature in this image. The linear (vertical) tectonic feature terminates and forms a volcanic channel heading to the left side of the image. The entire Tharsis region contains many examples of the complex interaction of volcanic and tectonic processes.
