Topographical View of Hadley crater

September 8, 2012
This color-coded plan view is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. The color coding highlights the depth of the central impact crater, reaching down almost 2600 m compared to the region surrounding Hadley Crater itself. Deep craters like these provide scientists with a view through the historical timeline of Mars’ formation. Centered at around 19°S and 157°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 19 m per pixel.
