Great Zoom into Distributary Fan, Mars

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio, NASA

Zoom-in on a fabulous distributary channel system in a crater northeast of Holden Crater on Mars. The images show compelling evidence for water flow on the Martian surface creating a distributary fan, meanders, and cut-offs. The page features an MPEG-1 movie showing the surface, along with numerous static images illustrating the same features. The movie may be viewed with either QuickTime or Windows Media Player.
