Description
Arsia Mons is the southernmost of three volcanos (collectively known as Tharsis Montes) on the Tharsis bulge near the equator of the planet Mars. To its north is Pavonis Mons, and north of that is Ascraeus Mons. The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons, is to its northwest. Its name comes from a corresponding albedo feature on a map by Giovanni Schiaparelli, which he named in turn after the legendary Roman forest of Arsia Silva. Arsia Mons is 270 miles (approximately 435 kilometres) in diameter, almost 12 miles high (more than 9 kilometers (5.6 miles) higher than the surrounding plains), and the summit caldera is 72 miles (approximately 110 km) wide. It experiences atmospheric pressure lower than 107 pascals at the summit. Except for Olympus Mons, it is the biggest volcano in volume. #Alba_Mons #Amphitrites_Patera #Anseris_Mons #Apollinaris_Mons #Argyre_Planitia #Arsia_Silva #Arsiamons #Artificial_objects_on_Mars #Ascraeus_Mons #Biblis_Tholus #Bonneville #Catenae #Chronius_Mons #Colonization #Eagle #Eberswalde #Elysium_Mons #Endurance #Erebus #Euripus_Mons #Galle #Geography_of_Mars #Gonnus_Mons #Gusev #Hadriacus_Mons #Hellas_Planitia #HiRISE #Issedon_Paterae #Jeroen_Hut #Labeatis_Mons #Malea_Patera #Manned_mission #Mars #Mars_landing #Mars_Pathfinder #Mars_rover #Mount #Mount_Everest #mountains_on_Mars #Nili_Patera #Olympus_Mons #Opportunityobserved_features #Pavonis_Mons #Peneus_Patera #Phobos_program #Pindus_Mons #Pityusa_Patera #Promethei_Mons #Schiaparelli #Space #Spiritobserved_features #Sun #Syrtis_Major #Terraforming #Tharsis_Montes #Tharsis_Tholus #Tholus #Tyrrhenus_Mons #Ulysses #Uranius_Mons #Victoria #Viking_program
