Charitum Montes in perspective

This computer-generated perspective view of Charitum Montes was created using data obtained from the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA’s Mars Express. Centred at around 53°S and 334°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 20 m per pixel. The image shows the large breach in the northern wall of the crater, located near to the uppermost sand dune. The dusting of carbon dioxide ice is a seasonal feature in this region, which covers the crater floor and the surrounding plains.
