Cratered cones on northern plains. The title alone sounds delicious. These cratered cones might be mud volcanoes, landforms created by the eruption of mud or slurries, water and gases. No lava involved. HiRISE Picture of the Day archive. [More at … Continue reading
Pitted cones. The objective of this observation is to examine if these cones are deformed along this ridge in Acidialia Planitia. HiRISE Picture of the Day archive. [More at links]
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 12, 2019. Today’s false-color VIS image is located in the plains between Chryse and Acidalia Planitias. Dark blue tones in this false color combination are usually created by basaltic sands. There appears to be … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, October 23, 2018. This false-color VIS image shows some of the plains of Arcadia Planitia in the northern lowlands. Isolated small hills are a common feature in this part of the planitia. Hills like these … Continue reading
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.
