Mars’ mantle may be more complicated than previously thought. In a new study published [February 24] in the Nature-affiliated journal Scientific Reports, researchers at Louisiana State University document geochemical changes over time in the lava flows of Elysium, a major … Continue reading
Analysis of a Martian meteorite found in Africa in 2012 has uncovered evidence of at least 2 billion years of volcanic activity on Mars. This confirms that some of the longest-lived volcanoes in the solar system may be found on … Continue reading
Planetary Geomorphology Image of the Month, January 30, 2017: Petr Brož (Institute of Geophysics, Czech Academy of Science). Volcanism is an important process which shapes the surfaces of all terrestrial planets, and is still active on Earth, Jupiter’s moon Io, … 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
Thin, blade-like walls, some as tall as a 16-story building, dominate a previously undocumented network of intersecting ridges on Mars, found in images from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The simplest explanation for these impressive ridges is that lava flowed into … Continue reading
When NASA’s Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander touches down on Mars in November 2018, it will become the planet’s most advanced geophysical monitoring station. From its landing site on the plains of Elysium Planitia, … Continue reading
