About this image

The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations of the surface not easily identified in a single band image. Today's false color image shows part of the main channel of Ares Vallis, as well as a small side tributary. Located in Margaritifer Terra, Ares Vallis is part of a large system of channels that arise in Valles Marineris and flow northward into Chryse Planitia.
