About this image

The great highland/lowland boundary that divides the whole of Mars cuts diagonally through this image. The smoother lowland terrain to the north appears to lap up against the highland terrain. An eroded layered terrain also is evident in the lower third of the image. This may be a remnant of the Medussae Fossae Formation, a lobe of which occurs just to the west of this scene.
