This image shows partially exposed bedrock within the Koval’sky impact basin, which is on the outskirts of the extensive lava field of Daedalia Planum. Daedalia Planum is located southwest of Arsia Mons, which may be the source responsible for filling … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, May 19, 2017. Today’s VIS image show lava flows in Daedalia Planum that originated from Arsia Mons. At lower right, note the three circular “skylights” — places where the roof of an underground lava tube … Continue reading
New NASA research reveals that the giant Martian volcano Arsia Mons produced one new lava flow at its summit every 1 to 3 million years during the final peak of activity. The last volcanic activity there ceased about 50 million … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, January 26, 2017. The grazing light of sunrise, coming from the right, reveals edges and other details in lava flows of Daedalia Planum. These flows come from Arsia Mons volcano. A windstreak is visible at … Continue reading
Relatively dust free lavas from Arsia Mons. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, September 26, 2016. Today’s VIS image shows a small portion of Daedalia Planum. Daedalia Planum was created by lava flows from Arsia Mons. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
