THEMIS Image of the Day, April 5, 2019. This false-color VIS image is located in the center of Syrtis Major Planum. At the top of the image is Nili Patera, a volcanic summit. The sand dunes located near Nili Patera … Continue reading
A ridge on the plains. This ridge on rocky plains is located not to far from Daedalia Planum, a featureless plain with multiple lava flows and small craters. HiRISE Picture of the Day archive [More at links]
Wrinkle ridges and knobs in Schiaparelli Crater. From the science rationale: Distinctive knobs centered on rings in an area with numerous wrinkle ridges. Investigate timing relationships and structure of the knobs and rings. Beautiful Mars series.
Getting from here to there in Utopia Planitia. Is this a wrinkle ridge or a flow margin? Knowing will help in the study of regional tectonics here. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, October 26, 2017. This image shows part of the dune field near Meroe Patera. High resolution imaging by other spacecraft has revealed that the dunes in this region are moving. Winds are blowing the dunes … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, October 25, 2017. This image shows part of the dune field near Meroe Patera. The large ropy ridge running down the picture is a wrinkle ridge. These are caused when compression forces cause lava flows … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, October 24, 2017. This image shows part of the dune field near Meroe Patera. High resolution imaging by other spacecraft has revealed that the dunes in this region are moving. Winds are blowing the dunes … Continue reading
Tectonic stresses highly modified this area of Ganges Catena, north of Valles Marineris. The long, skinny ridges (called “wrinkle ridges”) are evidence of compressional stresses in Mars’ crust that created a crack (fault) where one side was pushed on top … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 16, 2015. Today’s VIS image of Terra Cimmeria shows two channels intersecting to become one larger channel. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
