Original Caption Released with Image:

Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image of a 10 km by 12 km area of Coprates Chasma (14.7 degrees S, 55.8 degrees W), a ridge with a flat upper surface in the center of Coprates Chasma, which is part of the 6000-km-long Valles Marineris. Rock layers are visible just below the ridge. The gray scale (4.8 m/pixel) MOC image was combined with a Viking Orbiter color view of the same area. The faults of a graben offset beds on the slope to the left.
