About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of Ganges Chasma. A large landslide deposit is visible in the center of the image. The radial grooves on the top of a landslide are a common feature formed by the downslope movement of the landslide materials. Ganges Chasma is part of the Valles Marineris chasma system, but is north of the main section of canyons. Ganges Chasma is 584km (363 miles) long.
