THEMIS: Floods of once-molten rock spread across Daedalia Planum

Floods of lava across Daedalia Planum (THEMIS_IOTD_20190211)THEMIS Image of the Day, February 11, 2019. Today’s VIS image shows part of the extensive volcanic flows that make up Daedalia Planum. The different layers and surface textures are due to flows at different times, or the affect of cooling as the flow narrows and extends far from the lava source.

Daedalia Planum volcanic flows originate at or near Arsia Mons.
