May 4, 2006
In this rotated view, the two arms of the Nanedi Valles valley can be clearly seen merging at right (to the north). The deepest portion of the valley drops to 500 metres below the surrounding surface. By studying Nanedi Valles, scientists hope to better understand the climatic evolution of the Red Planet.
