This image shows one of the first regions of Mars measured after CRISM's cover was opened. The image is part of the second multispectral survey strip, taken at 22:36 UTC (6:36 p.m. EDT) on Sept. 27, 2006. Only minimal processing of the data has been done at this early point in the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's mission. The strip crosses part of the north polar region named Olympia Undae, and stretches between 76.7 north latitude, 141.9 east longitude and 85.5 north, 115.8 east. From the left, the northern end of the image crosses layers of dusty and clean ice in the north polar cap. Moving south (right) the image covers dusty sedimentary deposits, dark sand dunes, and outlying polar ice deposits. The banner shown above has been rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise and covers only the northernmost part of the full image.
