HiRISE: A margin of lava

ESP_054681_1835A margin of lava. This lava margin in Cerberus Palus is part of the Athabasca Valles flow. There are also lava coils in this region, something we did not know existed on Mars until HiRISE took an image. The lava coils are extremely long as compared to those that form on Earth.
