THEMIS Image of the Day, June 21, 2019. This VIS image shows lava flows from Alba Mons, and a tectonic graben called Cyane Fossae. It is thought that the linear depressions that surround Alba Mons were created by a huge … Continue reading
Lava terminal deposit in Cyane Fossae. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, August 16, 2016. This VIS image show part of Cyane Fossae, located near Alba Mons. The linear feature is bounded by faulting, creating a feature called a graben. The multiple crater-type forms may indicate that … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, July 31, 2014. The linear feature in this image is part of Cyane Fossae. The circular collapse features are bounded by linear faults. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, July 3, 2014. The linear depressions in this VIS image are called graben. Graben are bounded on both sides by faults, and the central material has shifted downward between the faults. Cyane Fossae are near … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 23, 2014. The graben in this VIS image is Cyane Fossae. The lava flows are part of the extensive Tharsis volcanic flows. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
