Today's VIS image show part of the floor of Eberswalde Crater. This crater is host to a large delta, a feature formed when a channel enters standing water and the velocity slows, depositing the sediment carried by the water. The complexity of the crater floor indicates many layers of materials, perhaps deposited when Eberswalde Crater was a lake. The Eberswalde Crater delta is one of the best preserved on Mars.

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.
