About this image

In planetary nomenclature, the descriptor term chaos means "distinctive area of broken terrain". The general morphology of chaos is steep-sided mesas in close proximity. This VIS image shows a region of chaos where the isolated mesas are still very large, as well as other locations that are already reduced by erosion into small mesas. This image is located south of Eos Chasma.
