This observation shows relatively bright mounds scattered throughout darker and diverse surfaces in Chryse Planitia. These mounds are hundreds of meters in size. The largest of the mounds shows a central pit, similar to the collapsed craters found at the … Continue reading
Various volcanic landforms in southeast Elysium Planitia. The second image [above] is at full resolution, less than 1 km across, both are 279 km above the surface. Beautiful Mars series.
Cones in Utopia Rupes. Beautiful Mars series.
In a land of rootless cones — Flood lava and rootless cones in Cerberus Palus. A rootless cone is a formation that resembles a volcanic crater, but differs in that it is not an actual vent from which lava has erupted, … Continue reading
Lost in coneland. The formation of these cones may have something to do with the ejecta heating the ground and turning ice into steam. Beautiful Mars series.
Beautiful Mars series. Field of cones in Utopia Planitia. More Beautiful Mars images.
In the center of this observation, we see a ring of cones that have developed over a crater rim. Lava appears to have deflated around and within the ring. Interestingly, the area around the ring has few cones: did water … Continue reading
