About this 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. Today's false color image shows dunes in several craters in Noachis Terra. As with other craters in this region, large mounds of sand dunes are located on the crater floors. Wind directions that blow from east south east to west north west (lower right corner to upper left corner of the image) are arising from Hellas Planitia.
