Channels in Nilokeras Mensae

Channels in Nilokeras Mensae

Channels in Nilokeras Mensae
The objective of this observation is to examine a point where several channels join. Some of the channels may be younger than others because they form hanging valleys. HiRISE shows much more detail than previous Context Camera images. (A mensa is a flat-topped prominence with cliff-like edges, i.e. a mesa.) The HRSC instrument on Mars Express has imaged stratus clouds over this region.
