This image was taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft. The HRSC obtained this image on 28 May 2004 during orbit 449 with a ground resolution of approximately 48 metres per pixel. The scene shows the region of Coprates Chasma and Coprates Catena, over an area centred at about 13.5° South and 300° East.

The trough of Coprates Chasma appears in the north (right-hand side) of the image, and ranges from approximately 60 km to 100 km wide and extends 8-9 km below the surrounding plains. Coprates Catena lies parallel to Coprates Chasma and can be seen in the south (left) of the image as three troughs, ranging from a few kilometres to 22 km wide and up to 5 km deep.
