10 September 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a portion of an outflow channel system located in the Zephyria region, south of Cerberus, from which vast quantities of rough-surfaced material flowed. The channel system has no name and was not known prior to the MGS mission. The material that flowed through this system may have been extremely fluid lava, or it may have been water-rich mud. Research by members of the Mars science community regarding the nature and origin of flow materials in the Cerberus, Zephyria, and Marte Vallis regions of Mars is on-going. This image is located near 4.6N, 204.1W. The image covers an area approximately 3 km (1.9 mi) across and is illuminated by sunlight from the left/lower left.
