Abstract

Multiple layers of lava flows and channels characterize the region adjacent to the eastern slope of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano on Mars. We have mapped this volcanic region to survey and classify individual channel systems and determine their formative processes. As a final output of this mapping effort, we have produced a 1:1.9 million scale channel map that is first published in this paper in both GIS and static formats.
