Hebes Chasma, Mars, height-colour-coded satellite image. This is an overhead orthographic image: white and red areas are highest, and blue and purple areas are lowest. Hebes Chasma is an 8-kilometre-deep trough formed by volcanic activity. It is some 300 kilometres long, and in its centre is a flat-topped tableland. 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.
