Highlight of the Month February: Dao and Niger Valles Animation


Our highlight shows a fly-over of Dao and Niger Valles (see also Highlight of the Month March, #001).This Outflow-Channel system is in some areas up to 40 km wide. The northern Dao Vallis, 2400 m deep, is about 1000 m deeper as the southern Niger Vallis.

This HRSC mosaic consists of eight single HRSC orbits. It extends over 755 km (N-S) and 770 km (E-W) and covers an area of 581,350 km². The HRSC-DTM has a resolution of 125 m/pixel whereas the nadir mosaic was processed at a resolution of 25 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.
