Highlight of the Month :

Our September 2011 highlight features the region Aeolis Mensae (also see HRSC Press Release #327) which is located at the transition zone between the southern highlands and the northern plains, the so-called crustal dichotomy boundary. The scene shows tectonic structures, mesas as well as clod-shaped mountains also known as fretted terrain. The landscape has been sculptured by wind. A number of yardangs - more or less streamlined ridges up to several kilometres long - formed by wind erosion. Those yardangs are observed to the northwest with minor occurrences in the region of intense tectonic deformation.

The image data in orbit 8425 were obtained on 2 August 2010. Presented scenes are centred at about 7° S and 152° E and have resolutions of approximately 21 meters 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.
