Windstreaks are a record of wind directions and are an important part of deciphering the history of the surface. This VIS image contains a very subtle windstreak in the bottom 1/3 of the image. Originating at a small crater, the windstreak records a wind that blew east to west. This VIS image is located southwest of Olympus Mons.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the 2001 Mars Odyssey mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) was developed by Arizona State University, Tempe, in collaboration with Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing. The THEMIS investigation is led by Dr. Philip Christensen at Arizona State University. Lockheed Martin Astronautics, Denver, is the prime contractor for the Odyssey project, and developed and built the orbiter. Mission operations are conducted jointly from Lockheed Martin and from JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
