THEMIS image: windstreaks

THEMIS Image of the Day, January 31, 2014. The windstreaks in this VIS image are located on the lava plains between Pavonis Mons and Noctis Fossae. Streaks form on the down wind side of positive topographic features (like hills and crater rims), indicating that the winds which created these streaks blew toward the north east in this region.
