About this image

THEMIS has taken some great pictures of Valles Marineris, the largest canyon in the solar system. If this canyon were on Earth, it would stretch from New York to Los Angeles.
This image shows the central ridge that runs through Ius Chasma. A small double landslide deposit is visible on the northern side of the central ridge.

Please see the THEMIS Data Citation Note for details on crediting THEMIS images.
