About this image

Today's VIS image shows a section of Olympica Fossae. Olympica Fossae is a complex channel located on the volcanic plains between Alba Mons and Olympus Mons. The sinuosity of the channels in the middle of the image indicates that these channels were created by liquid flow. In this case the location and other surface features point to lava rather than water as the liquid.
