About this image

The major Martian dust storm of 2007 filled the sky with dust and produced conditions that prevented the THEMIS VIS camera from being able to image the surface. With no new images being acquired, we've dug into the archive to highlight some interesting areas on Mars. The this week's topic is medium sized channels. Tinto Vallis is bounded by steep walls so its sinuous course is easy to identify and trace from image to image.

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