About this image

This VIS image shows a small portion of the vast lava fields called Daedalia Planum. These flows originated from Arsia Mons, the southernmost and youngest of the three aligned Tharis volcanoes. Different surface textures arise from different factors in the flows, such as temperature, flow volume, composition and cooling rates.
