Description:

MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-415, 8 July 2003 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a "text-book example" of an offset in layered rock caused by a fault. The offset is most easily seen near the upper right of the image. The martian crust is faulted, and the planet has probably experienced "earthquakes" (or, marsquakes) in the past. This scene is located on the floor of Ius Chasma near 7.8S, 80.6W. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left.
