THEMIS Image of the Day, October 11, 2018. This false-color VIS image shows the eastern flank of Pavonis Mons. The darker streaks are created by wind action, and the curving lines are faults produced when the volcano “relaxed” under the weight of its lava flows.
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.
