Rupes Tenuis in 3D

March 6, 2009
ESA's Mars Express orbiter imaged the snow-laden region of Rupes Tenuis on the martian north pole on 29 July 2008.

Rupes Tenuis is located at the southern edge of the martian north polar cap, approximately 5500 km northeast of the Tharsis volcanic region.

The images are at about 81° north and 297° east and have a ground resolution of approximately 41 m/pixel. They cover an area of about 44 000 km2, almost as large as the Netherlands.

This anaglyph image was calculated from the nadir and one stereo channel. Stereoscopic glasses are required for viewing.
