Sulci Gordii topography

Sulci Gordii topography
Using the HRSC stereo camera, digital terrain models can be derived that illustrate the topography of the region using false colours. The altitude allocation can be read from a colour scale at top; north is to the right in the image. In the absence of 'sea level', the elevation data is referenced to an areoid – a modelled equipotential surface on which everything experiences the same gravitational attraction towards the centre of the planet. This image shows the Sulci Gordii region of Mars, which lies about 200 kilometres east of Olympus Mons. Sulci Gordii was imaged on 23 January 2013 (orbit 11,531), with a ground resolution of approximately 31 metres per pixel.
