The colour-coded topographic view shows relative heights and depths of terrain in the region of Mars where Kasei Vallis reaches Chryse Planitia. As indicated in the key at top right, whites and reds represent the highest terrain, while blue is the lowest.
The image is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived.
This region was imaged by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express on 25 May 2016 during orbit 15714. The image is centred on 309ºE/27ºN and the ground resolution is about 15 m per pixel. North is to the right.
