Deuteronilus Mensae region on Mars
This image provides a perspective view of the Deuteronilus Mensae region on Mars taken by the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express with a ground resolution of approximately 29 meters per pixel. The dark depression visible at the top-left of the image measures 2000 meters in depth and 110 kilometers in diameter, north to south. Deeply incised valleys of a depth ranging from 800 to 1200 meters are clearly identifiable in the northeastern part of the scene. It is believed that those valleys may have originated from intense flooding by melted water ice. The water then froze rather quickly and flowed down the slopes of the depression like a glacier. The view has been calculated from the digital terrain model derived from the stereo channels.
