Comparison of flank modification on Ascraeus and Arsia Montes volcanoes, MarsGeologic mapping of the Tharsis Montes on Mars is in progress as part of the Mars Geologic Mapping Program of NASA. Mapping of the southern flanks of Ascraeus Mons at 1:500,000 scale was undertaken first followed by detailed mapping of Arsia Mons; mapping of Pavonis Mons will begin later this year. Results indicate that each of the Tharsis volcanoes displays unique variations on the general 'theme' of a martian shield volcano. Here we concentrate on the flank characteristics on Ascraeus Mons and Arsia Mons, the northernmost and southernmost of the Tharsis Montes, as illustrative of the most prominent trends.
