Amenthes Planum

February 15, 2013
High-Resolution Stereo Camera nadir and color channel data taken during revolution 11497 on 13 January 2013 by ESA’s Mars Express have been combined to form a natural-color view of the region southeast of Amenthes Planum and north of Hesperia Planum. The region imaged, which lies to the west of Tinto Vallis and Palos crater, is centered at around 3°S and 109°E, and has a ground resolution of about 22 m per pixel.

The image features craters, lava channels and a valley from which water may have once flowed. Dark wind-blown sediments fill the valleys and the floors of the craters.
