Arsia Mons is the southermost of the large aligned Tharsis volcanoes. Flows originating at Arsia Mons cover a vast region. The flows in this VIS image are part of the SW flow apron of Arsia Mons. The Tharsis trend runs NE/SW thru the centers of the volcanoes creating regions of greater tectonic and volcanic activities along this trend.
