Marius Hills, Moon
11. Marius Hills, Moon

Although most lunar volcanism produced the broad lava flows that infill the lunar maria, in a few places, such as the Marius Hills (14N, 56W), it is possible to find volcanic domes. In this scene we can see several lunar domes. Some of these domes are quite smooth and low, while others are more rugged and heavily cratered. Two large sinuous rilles similar to Hadley Rille (slide #12) can also be seen cross-cutting a mare ridge.
