June 12, 2011
The layers in these cliffs show buried ice deposits in the southern polar region of Mars close to Ulyxis Rupes at about 72°S/162°E. The image was obtained by Mars Express on 15 January 2011 during orbit 8995 using the High Resolution Stereo Camera. These perspective views have been calculated from the Digital Terrain Model derived from the stereo channels.
