Today's VIS image shows a landslide deposit in Tiu Valles. The impact that created the crater likely caused the landslide, either during the impact event or shortly after. Located in Margaritifer Terra, Tiu Valles is part of a large system of channels that arise from Vallis Marineris and flow northward to empty into Chryse Planitia. Tiu Valles is 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.
