Ismenia Patera in context within Arabia Terra

Martian crater Ismenia Patera in context of its surrounds in Arabia Terra. Ismenia Patera is a potential supervolcano; another supervolcano candidate, Siloe Patera, can be seen to the lower right of the frame.

The region outlined by the large white box indicates the area imaged during Mars Express orbit 17723 on 1 January 2018, from which the associated image release, outlined by the smaller box, is compiled. In this context image, the blue–green hues represent the elevation of the surface (values marked on the scale at the bottom). The image is centred at about 39°N / 2°E.

Perspective view of Ismenia Patera

This image shows an oblique perspective view of Ismenia Patera, a crater located in the Arabia Terra region of Mars’ surface. It was taken on 1 January 2018 by the stereo channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express, and highlights the uneven terrain around and within the crater and the flow-marked deposits on the crater floor.

Mars Express view of Ismenia Patera

This image was taken on 1 January 2018 by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express, and shows a crater named Ismenia Patera.

This crater lies within Arabia Terra, an intriguing part of Mars’ surface thought to have once hosted significant volcanic activity. Scientists remain unsure of exactly how Ismenia Patera formed; it may be the result of a meteorite smashing into the surface of Mars and forming an impact crater, or the collapsed remnants of a once-massive supervolcano.

This image was created using data from HRSC’s nadir channel, which points directly downwards and offers a field of view aligned perpendicular to the planetary surface, and colour channels. The ground resolution is approximately 17 m/pixel and the image is centred at about 2°E /39°N.

Topographic view of Ismenia Patera

This colour-coded topographic view shows a crater named Ismenia Patera within Arabia Terra, an intriguing part of Mars’ surface thought to have once hosted significant volcanic activity.

Scientists remain unsure of exactly how Ismenia Patera formed; it may be the result of a meteorite smashing into the surface of Mars and forming an impact crater, or the collapsed remnants of a once-massive supervolcano.

This topographic view is based on a digital terrain model of Arabia Terra, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived, and observations taken on 1 January 2018 by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express. It shows the area in relief; as shown in the overlaid bar to the top right, purple and blue shades represent low depressions, while red–orange shades mark higher parts of the surface (values are displayed on the scale). The ground resolution is about 17 m/pixel and the image is centred at about 39°N / 2°E.

Ismenia Patera in 3D

Martian crater Ismenia Patera and surrounds can be seen in 3D when viewed using red–green or red–blue glasses. The anaglyph was derived from data acquired on 1 January 2018 by the nadir channel and one stereo channel of the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express. The image is centred at about 39°N / 2°E.
