Today's VIS image shows part of the floor of Eberwalde Crater. A large delta deposit is located just to the northwest of this image. This crater once hosted a lake, and the floor is covered with layered materials. Clays have been identified, the result of the interaction of water and eroded materials from the crater floor, as well as the influx of sediments from the channel that created the delta. Eberswalde Crater is 62 km in diameter (38 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.
