Highlight of the Month July: Valles Marineris Animation


This highlight shows a flyover of the central region of Valles Marineris. Its name is derived from the Latin meaning Mariner Valleys. This gigantic canyon is a rift system more than 4000 km long, 200 km wide, and up to 7 km deep. From our 100 m/pixel DTM mosaic and the 25 m/pixel nadir mosaic covering the entire valles region, a sub-region was selected featuring the Melas, Candor, and Ophir chasmata. For the shown sequence 13 HRSC orbits were used. The animation was created using the software LightWave. Due to the large size of the original nadir mosaic it had to be down sampled to a resolution of 50 m/pixel.

The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) experiment on the ESA Mars Express Mission is led by the Principal Investigator (PI) Prof. Dr. Gerhard Neukum who also designed the camera technically. The science team of the experiment consists of 40 Co-Investigators from 33 institutions and 10 nations. The camera was developed at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) under the leadership of the PI G. Neukum and built in cooperation with industrial partners (EADS Astrium, Lewicki Microelectronic GmbH and Jena-Optronik GmbH). The experiment on Mars Express is operated by the DLR Institute of Planetary Research, through ESA/ESOC. The systematic processing of the HRSC image data is carried out at DLR. The scenes shown here were created by the PI-group at the Institute for Geological Sciences of the Freie Universitaet Berlin.
