The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. Data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. This image captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows part of Candor Chasma.
The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. Data from different filters can be combined in many ways to create a false color image. The linear features in this image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft are the graben called Sirenum Fossae.
This unnamed crater contains a small dune field in the central part of its floor. This image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft was collected in northern spring and the dunes are still frost covered.
This graphic depicts paths by which carbon has been exchanged among Martian interior, surface rocks, polar caps, waters and atmosphere, and also depicts a mechanism by which it is lost from the atmosphere with a strong effect on isotope ratio.
This image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows the northern margin of Tanaica Montes. These hills are cut by fractures, which are in alignment with the regional trend of tectonic faulting found east of Alba Mons.
This image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows a portion of Granicus Valles. This channel system is located west of Elysium Mons and likely was created by both lava and water flow related to the Elysium Mons volcanic complex.
Curiosity Rover's Traverse, First 1,163 Sols on Mars
This map shows the route driven by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover from the location where it landed in August 2012 to its location in mid-November 2015, approaching examples of dunes in the 'Bagnold Dunes' dune field.
Curiosity Rover Will Study Dunes on Route up Mountain
This view from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a dark sand dune in the middle distance. Mount Sharp will be the first in-place study of an active sand dune anywhere other than Earth.
This view from the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on the arm of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a combination of dark and light material within a mineral vein at a site called 'Garden City' on lower Mount Sharp.
Injection of Light Material into an Older Dark Vein
Light material emplaced within darker vein material is seen in this view of a mineral vein at the 'Garden City' site on lower Mount Sharp, Mars. The Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on the arm of NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover took the image on April 4, 2015.
These images and overlay bar charts at 'Garden City' from the Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam) instrument on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover indicate where some high-potassium material is localized within mineral veins.
