The Phlegra Montes are a system of mountains in the Cebrenia quadrangle of Mars, located at 40.4 degrees north latitude and 163.71 degrees east longitude. They are 1,350 km across and were named after a classical albedo feature name.
Material moving down slope in the Phlegra Montes, as seen by HiRISE. Movement is probably aided by water/ice.
Lobate Debris Apron in the Phlegra Montes, as seen by HiRISE. The debris apron is probably mostly ice with a thin covering of rock debris, so it could be a source of water for future Martian colonists. Scale bar is 500 meters long.
