Context image

This VIS image shows a small portion of the floor of Galle Crater. This large crater is located on the eastern side of Argyre Planitia. The floor of Galle Crater contains many different features, including fluvial, glacial and aeolian derived products. The steep crater rim is toward the bottom of the image. The incised, flat laying materials at the top of the image are probably eroded layered deposits.

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.
