THEMIS: Nili Fossae – false color

Exposed basalt rock and sand in Nili Fossae (THEMIS_IOTD_20151228)THEMIS Image of the Day, December 28, 2015. The THEMIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations of the surface not easily identified in a single band image. Today’s false color image shows part of Nili Fossae. Dark “blue” is interpreted to be basaltic rock/sand.
