About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of the northern cliff face of Ophir Chasma. The bottom of the image is covered in deposits from large landslides. The dark band in the center of the image is a layer of material that is more resistant than the other parts of the cliff face. This layer is likely a thick volcanic flow or intruded dike. Ophir Chasma is approximately 317km long (197 miles).
