THEMIS: Dust devil tracks in Promethei Terra
THEMIS Image of the Day, January 2, 2019. This VIS image shows a region dense with dust devil tracks (and several pedestal craters).
Located in Promethei Terra, these tracks run parallel to the nearby southeastern margin of Hellas Planitia. The number of tracks and amount of overlapping indicates that there are long term winds in this region.
