About this image

This false color image shows part of the floor of Kaiser Crater. Kaiser Crater is 207 km (129 miles) in diameter and is located in Noachis Terra west of Hellas Planitia . This sand dune field is one of several regions of sand dunes located in the southern part of the crater floor. Dark blue in this false color combination are typically basaltic sand. The dunes in this image are moving west - towards the left side of the image.

The THEMIS VIS 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.
