About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of Iani Chaos. Chaos terrain is typified by mesas and valleys. The initial breakup of the land is due to tectonic forces. With time and erosion the valleys widen and the mesas grow smaller. This image shows a cross section of Iani Chaos and the different scales of the mesas are readily visible.
