Hebes Chasma, Mars, satellite image. North is at right. This is an overhead stereo-colour image of the western end of Hebes Chasma, an enclosed trough formed by volcanic activity, descending to depths of 8 kilometres (the deepest parts being shown here). It is thought that groundwater once flowed through this canyon, helping to form the numerous erosion gullies at lower centre. This area is around 200 kilometres across. The image data is from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express Orbiter.
