Olympica Fossae

October 12, 2009
Olympica Fossae channel system located east of the Olympus Mons volcano in Tharsis. These anastomosing channels cut numerous lava flows indicating that the channels are younger than the lava flows. Some channels appear to be structurally controlled. These channels are most likely generated by volcano-ground ice interactions.
