THEMIS: Crater channels, gullies, dunes & a pit

Crater channels gullies and dunes (THEMIS_IOTD_20170125)THEMIS Image of the Day, January 25, 2017. This VIS image shows part of an unnamed crater in Terra Cimmeria. The crater rim is dissected by gullies, and the central pit has several channels entering from the higher elevation of the crater floor. Dunes are also visible in the crater pit. The dark tone of the dunes suggests they are free of dust and therefore likely moveable by the wind.
