About this image

Like Arsia Mons to the south, the massive volcano Pavonis Mons displays an aureole deposit at the base of its western flank. This image captures details of the volcanic landscape out in front of the ridged deposit, showing lava flow lobes and channels with levees. In addition to the prominent arcuate ridges of the aureole deposit, a set of much smaller ridges oriented in a NW-SE direction are evident that may be the product of wind activity.
