Elevation of Ulyxis Rupes
June 9, 2011
The elevation of this region decreases markedly from south to north, dropping in steps by about 1500 m in total from left to right across the image. The image was created using a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) obtained from the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA's Mars Express spacecraft. Elevation data from the DTM is colour coded: purple indicates the lowest lying regions and grey the highest.
