Colour-coded plan view of Hadley Crater


This colour-coded plan view is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived. The colour coding highlights the depth of the central impact crater, reaching down almost 2600 m compared to the region surrounding Hadley Crater itself. Deep craters like these provide scientists with a view through the historical timeline of Mars’ formation. Centred at around 19°S and 157°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 19 m per pixel.
