Channels and Fractures at Claritas Fossae

This VIS image of the Claritas Fossae region illustrates how fractures affect other features. In this instance, the fractures control the path of several channels (from upper right towards lower left). The channels follow the fractures and then follow the slope towards the bottom of the image.
