Coogoon Vallis Fan

Natural color image of the Coogoon Vallis fan. This region hosts a wide variety of clay-rich rocks, which the ESA's ExoMars Rover is slated to explore starting in 2021.


This image combines a mosaic of monochrome Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter CTX images with ~6 m/px resolution with color imagery from the Mars Express HRSC instrument, which has a color resolution of ~100 m/px. The large mismatch in resolution creates some color artifacts, especially near sharp boundaries. The full-resolution image can be downloaded here:
