Geologically recent tectonic, volcanic and fluvial activity on the eastern flank of the Olympus Mons volcano, Mars

Authors


Abstract

[1] We show evidence of very recent (≤25–40 Myr) geologic activity on the eastern flank of Olympus Mons volcano that includes a suite of fluvial (channel networks), volcanic (emplacement of lava flows and dikes), and tectonic (wrinkle ridges and troughs) processes. The combination and youth of these features confirms the importance of geological activity continuing to the present on Mars.
