THEMIS: Southern dunes – false color

Southern polar dunes (THEMIS_IOTD_20151202)THEMIS Image of the Day, December 2, 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 a large sand sheet and dune forms at the margin of the south polar cap. The bright toned material at the bottom of the image is the polar cap.
