About this image

Today's VIS image is located just east of Arsia Mons. Numerous volcanic flows are visible, flowing downhill to the lower right side of the image. Several tectonic graben are present, generally trending perpendicular to the flows. A small channel feature and a discontinuous channel follow the flow trend. These features are likely lava channels and lava tube traces.
