Highlight of the Month :

The Highlight of the Month November presents the second largest volcanic province on Mars - the Elysium Volcanic Province. It consists of three edifices - Elysium Mons, Albor Tholus, and Hecates Tholus. The volcanic region extends over 70° East-West and 35° North-South. In total, approximately 3.4 million square kilometers are covered by volcanic deposits. Elysium Mons is the tallest edifice in this region and rises up to 17.7 km above the surrounding plain to the west. The Elysium Volcanic Province is active for more than 4 billion years.

The mosaic was compiled from 12 HRSC nadir images with a resolution of 25 meters per pixel. The digital terrain model was processed with a resolution of 100 meters per pixel. Perspective views were processed with a vertical exaggeration of factor 3.

Link to HRSCView:

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.
