About this image

As one moves westward away from the volcano, Arsia Mons, the western lava flows change in appearance. The flows are typically broad, and the surface texture is more subdued than the southern flows. At the bottom of the image a windstreak 'tail' has formed behind a crater. Other dark streaks indicate that strong westward blowing winds occur in this region.
