Today's VIS image shows a section of unnamed channel located at the margin where large northward flowing channels enter Chryse Planitia. Channels such as Tiu, Ares, and Shalbatana Valles arise from the Valles Marineris canyons to empty a thousand miles later into the Chryse basin. Ares Vallis is over 1600km long (1000 miles) and Tiu Vallis is over 1720km long (1069 miles).

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.
