THEMIS Image of the Day, May 22, 2018. Today’s VIS image shows a section of Cerberus Fossae. Located southeast of the Elysium Planitia volcanic complex, the linear graben was created by tectonic forces related to the volcanic activity. The fossa … Continue reading
A re-analysis of data from the Neutron Spectrometer on NASA’s Mars Odyssey orbiter has nearly doubled the data’s resolution. The higher-resolution data show that small deposits of water ice lie buried at shallow depths near the martian equator in several … Continue reading
Aeolian erosion textures near Cerberus Fossae. Beautiful Mars series.
A dominant driver of surface processes on Mars today is aeolian (wind) activity. In many cases, sediment from this activity is trapped in low-lying areas, such as craters. Aeolian features in the form of dunes and ripples can occur in … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 10, 2016. Today’s VIS image shows a portion of Cerberus Fossae. The narrow linear features are graben, formed by a block of material moving downward along paired faults. More THEMIS Images of the Day … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 7, 2016. Today’s VIS image shows a portion of Cerberus Fossae. The fossae are linear depressions, called graben, created by tectonic activity. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
Fork in the fossae. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 5, 2016. Today’s VIS image shows a portion of Cerberus Fossae, a set of linear graben located south of Tartarus Montes. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, March 30, 2016. Cerberus Fossae is a group of graben located near the southern part of Tartarus Montes. The graben are fault bounded blocks of material that have slide downward along the fault faces. The … Continue reading
