Perspective view of Tinto Vallis

Perspective view of Tinto Vallis
This computer-generated perspective view of Tinto Vallis was created using data acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft. Acquired during orbit 11,497 and centred at around three degrees south and 109 degrees north, the image has a ground resolution of about 22 metres per pixel. This perspective view shows the mouth of Tinto Vallis, with its U-shaped cross section, indicative of sapping. The top left of the image is the periphery of a 100-kilometre-wide crater, the floor of which is littered with mesas and buttes.
