This perspective view shows the southern part of the caldera (summit crater) of the Olympus Mons volcano on Mars. The image has been calculated from the digital elevation model derived from the stereo channels and combined with the nadir- and colour-channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA’s Mars Express.
The scene reveals tongue-shaped mass-movement features in 3D on the southern wall.
The data has been retrieved from a height of 273 km in orbit 37 on 21 January 2004.
The view is centred at 18.3°N and 227°E. The image is about 40 km across. The vertical exaggeration is 1.8. South is up.
