This image of part of the Mangala Valles outflow channel system close to Minio Valles was acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express on 12 July 2015 during orbit 14622. The region has been subject to intense episodes of flooding, likely triggered by volcanic processes occurring in the nearby Tharsis region.
The name “Mangala” comes from the Sanskrit word for Mars.
The image is centred on 7ºS/208ºE. The ground resolution is about 16 m per pixel.
