Curving features at the source of Athabasca Valles. These curving features are likely due to lava surges near the vent of Athabasca. Beautiful Mars series. [More at links]
A Context Camera image shows a small bench in the middle of the Cerberus Fossae at the head of Athabasca Valles. Small cataracts appear on this bench. Do these reflect erosion as water drained back into the subsurface at the … Continue reading
Athabasca Valles lava. It’s quite the jumbled mess down here. The northern toe of this mesa appears to contact and possibly overlie a rift in the lava crust, giving the impression that the mesa is younger. Beautiful Mars series. [More at … Continue reading
This broken land. Surface near Athabasca Valles lava. Beautiful Mars series.
An unfortunate crater buried by lava buried in Athabasca Valles. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, December 18, 2015. Today’s VIS image shows a portion of Athabasca Valles. The channel has eroded some of the ejecta around the unnamed crater in the upper part of the image. More THEMIS Images of … Continue reading
Tilted mesas near Athabasca Valles. Beautiful Mars series.
Streamlined form in Athabasca Valles. Beautiful Mars series.
What is this enigmatic landform? The circular feature is nearly 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) wide. It looks like a circular island surrounded by a “sea” of smooth-looking lava flows. The Athabasca region contains some of the youngest lava flows on … Continue reading
This image shows a small channel cutting into young volcanic lavas in a region where massive catastrophic flooding took place in the relatively recent past. The Athabasca Valles region includes a vast lava flow, thought to be the youngest on … Continue reading
