Erm, OK. I'll concede, but I was thinking more of a color over-lay.
The "original" photo is meant to present a topographic view of that scape. Surface detail was not meant to be the focus of that image...

either merged (radio-image with RGB color bands overlayed) or some other method.

people studying it pixel by pixel.
What this thread is doing amounts to looking at a contour map of a mountain range and then expecting to find lines all over the mountain when you get
This photo is being used out of context. It's some man-made photographic anomaly. IMO...
