Description

Perspective view looking into a 20 km-wide crater in the Thaumasia mountain range. The crater interior shows slumping of its crater walls, but a flat, smooth floor, relating to glacial processes.

The oblique perspective view was generated using data from the Mars Express high-resolution stereo camera stereo channels. This scene is part of the region imaged on 9 April 2017 during Mars Express orbit 16807. The main image is centred on 281ºE/31ºS.
