SHARAD 3-D Radar Volume

 

x 

 

This cut-away view shows radar return power (blue high, red low) from features within Planum Boreum, the Martian north polar cap. The depth-converted 3-D volume of SHARAD data encompasses all of Planum Boreum. For scale, the no-data zone is 310 km across and the stack of NPLD layers to the right of the buried chasma is 2 km thick.
