It is thought that the Cerberus Fossae fissures on Mars were the source of both lava and water floods two to ten million years ago. Evidence for the resulting lava plains has been identified in eastern Elysium, but seas and lakes from these fissures and previous water flooding events were presumed to have evaporated and sublimed away. Here we present High Resolution Stereo Camera images from the European Space Agency Mars Express spacecraft that indicate that such lakes may still exist. We… 
Recent and episodic volcanic and glacial activity on Mars revealed by the High Resolution Stereo Camera
TLDR
It is shown that calderas on five major volcanoes on Mars have undergone repeated activation and resurfacing during the last 20 per cent of martian history, with phases of activity as young as two million years, suggesting that the volcanoes are potentially still active today.
Planetary science: Picturing a recently active Mars
TLDR
The evaluation of the first six months of data from the high-resolution stereo camera on board ESA's Mars Express probe reveals evidence for a frozen sea similar in area and depth to the North Sea on Earth, and some 5 million years old.
3D Reconstruction of the Source and Scale of Buried Young Flood Channels on Mars
TLDR
Three-dimensional reconstruction of buried channels on Mars shows that Cerberus Fossae provided the waters that carved Marte Vallis, and it extended an additional 180 kilometers to the east before the emplacement of the younger lava flows.
Mars northern plains ocean
Abstract Based on our update to the global map of the proposed paleoshorelines from the 1980s using high-quality global image and topography data acquired since the late 1990s, this chapter assesses
Evidence for Climate Change on Mars
One of the most striking differences between the present day climates of Earth and Mars is the ubiquitous and abundant presence of liquid water on Earth and the extremely dry atmosphere and surface
Water on Mars and the Prospect of Martian Life
Evidence of water on Mars dates back to the first observations of channeled landscapes made by Mariner 9 and Viking. More recent images from Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Express strikingly confirm
Late Amazonian Ice Survival in Kasei Valles, Mars
High‐obliquity excursions on Mars are hypothesized to have redistributed water from the poles to nourish mid‐latitude glaciers. Evidence of this process is provided by different types of viscous flow
Coils and Polygonal Crust in the Athabasca Valles Region, Mars, as Evidence for a Volcanic History
TLDR
High-resolution images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show that the Athabasca Valles on Mars is volcanic in origin, and 269 spiral coils ranging from 5 to 30 meters wide on the polygonally patterned interplate terrain that are morphologically consistent with terrestrial lava coils that form in zones of flow shear.
