About this image

Today's VIS image shows an unnamed region of chaos terrain located north of Kasei Valles. In planetary nomenclature, the descriptor term chaos means "distinctive area of broken terrain". The general morphology of chaos is steep-sided mesas in close proximity. This VIS image shows a region of chaos where the isolated mesas are still large, as well as other locations that are already reduced by erosion into small mesas.
