Caption: Mars ferric oxide map. Satellite image showing the distribution of ferric oxides, a mineral phase of iron, across the surface of Mars. The intensity in colour from blue to red represents the degree of oxidation of the surface from low to high, and therefore is related to the abundance of iron-bearing minerals. Image based on data obtained by the OMEGA instrument on ESA's (European Space Agency) Mars Express satellite.
