Today's VIS image shows part of the northeastern margin of Terra Sabaea. This regional boundary between the highlands of Terra Sabaea and lowlands of Utopia Planitia is heavily dissected by both fluid flow channels and extensive faulting. While many of the channels are unnamed, this image has three named channels: Clasia Vallis (center of image with ridge in the middle of the channel), Hypsas Vallis (the next channel below Clasia Vallis) and Clanis Valles (the very shallow channel at the bottom of the image). Clasia Vallis is 147km (91 miles) long, Hypsas Vallis is 33km (20 miles) long. and Clanis Valles is 58km (36 miles) long.

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.
