Polar Layers in False Color

January 30, 2005
The north polar region of Mars as seen in false color THEMIS images. Ice/frost will typically appear as bright blue in color; dust mantled ice will appear in tones of red/orange. This image again illustrates the oranger/bluer nature of the polar layers.
