Ascraeus Mons (AM) is the northeastern most large shield volcano residing in the Tharsis province on Mars. AM has a diameter of ~350 km and reaches a height of 16 km above Mars datum, making AM the third largest volcano on Mars. Previous mapping of a limited area of these volcanoes using HRSC images (13-25 m/pixel) revealed a diverse distribution of volcanic landforms within the calderas, along the flanks, rift aprons, and surrounding plains.
