Figure 9-11. Sinuous rifles emanate from depressions and enlarged fractures south of Ovda Regio. Segments of the channels trend parallel to the structural strike (some northeast; others northwest). Note radar-bright responses of steep channel walls that face toward the illumination. An impact crater about 12 km in diameter has disrupted the eastern channel at center right. Illumination is from the left at an incidence angle of 41 deg.
