Colour view of the Sirenum Fossae fracture system on Mars, located about 1800 km southwest of the vast Tharsis volcanic region. The features are associated with tectonic stresses linked to the volcanic activity of the region.
The images were acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express 5 March 2017 during Mars Express Orbit 16688. The ground resolution is approximately 14 m/pixel and the images are centered at 28°S / 215°E.
The colour image was created using data from the nadir channel, the field of view which is aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, and the camera’s colour channels.
