THEMIS Image of the Day, December 1, 2015. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations of the surface not easily identified in a single band image. Today’s false color image shows sand dunes and sand materials in depressions near the south pole. The dark blue tone shows the location of sand transport from one depression to another.
