About this image

Today's VIS image is located in Margaritifer Terra near Eos Chasma. The ground in this region has been broken up into mesas and valleys, with the initial break up thought to be due to a release of groundwater. With continued erosion, the mesas become smaller and smaller, creating the jumble of hills seen at the bottom of this image.
