Hebes Chasma, Mars, satellite image. North is at right. This is a perspective stereo-colour image of Hebes Chasma, an enclosed trough formed by volcanic activity, descending to depths of 8 kilometres. It is some 300 kilometres long, and in its centre is this flat-topped tableland, with rock layers revealed by erosion. It is thought that groundwater once flowed through this canyon, and the tableland also has multiple erosion gullies on its sides. The image data is from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express Orbiter.
