THEMIS Image of the Day, July 28, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of Coprates Chasma, just one side canyon within the vast equatorial rift zone called Valles Marineris.
The THEMIS 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.
