Abstract

There are several units on Mars which have been interpreted as glacial deposits based on morphological evidence. Many of these units are found on the flanks of volcanic edifices. The recent imaging by the HRSC camera on Mars Express has provided us with a wealth of new examples and greater morphological detail [1]. These include very young deposits, for example on the flanks of Hecates Tholus [2]. We have recently studied this deposit and found a high likelihood that it is still ice cored [3]. We have now started to study other similar deposits. Our current focus is the Arsia Mons fan-shaped deposit [1, 4]. We will report some preliminary results of our prospecting for ice in one of the young units of the Arsia Mons deposit.
