An anaglyph image of the western part of Aurorae Chaos

Anaglyph images can be created using the four stereo channels and nadir channel of the HRSC camera system. Using red-blue/cyan or red-green glasses, they allow realistic, three-dimensional views of the landscape. The differences in elevations in this region are immense. The surrounding highlands break up abruptly above 3000 metres into the basin of Aurorae Chaos. These isolated mountain peaks and buttes of the 'chaotic region' also distinctly emerge in the south (left). But even subtle topographic differences can be identified when viewed with anaglyph glasses; for example the rising alluvial fan deposits on the slopes in the right half of the image, tectonic fault structures in a large block above the centre of the image and an unusual depression on the bottom right of the image edge, whose origin is unknown.
