Prodigious ash deposits near the summit of Arsia Mons volcano , Mars

  author={Peter J. Mouginis-Mark},
[1] Mars Orbiter Camera images are used to identify widespread material interpreted to have formed via explosive volcanism on Arsia Mons volcano, Mars. This material crops out in cliff sections associated with pit craters in layers 45– 50 m thick. The large range of elevations where the material is found (6.2–17.5 km) suggests locally-derived materials, although extensive reworking has produced a wide variety of dune forms. Two possible styles of volcanism appear possible for generating this… CONTINUE READING
