Highlight of the Month March: North Polar Ice


In our March 2012 Highlight of the Month we present a very recent scene of the north polar region acquired 15 January 2012. Three morphological regions are beautifully portrayed here. In the south deposits of the northern lowlands are exposed where partially pedestal craters are preserved. Further north (centre of image) a broad dune field is observed recognized by its black to blue colours. The entire northern portion of the image the marginal region of the north pole cap is visible. Impact craters are partially or fully buried by ice and dust.

The image was taken in orbit 10247 with a resolution of 94 meter per 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.
