Citations[edit]

I have some references that might be helpful. I'll add them. Schaffman (talk) 10:02, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Shield Volcano[edit]

I'm uncertain whether it's a shield volcano in the sense that Olympus Mons is. It's more like a pancake in profile--a kind of volcano unique to Mars. Schaffman (talk) 10:30, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Expanding stub[edit]

I'd like to begin expanding this into short article. Any comments are welcome. Schaffman (talk) 10:41, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Cleaning up sections before Geology section.[edit]

I'm about to write the geology section. Before that though, I'm going through the Ivanov and Head (2006) paper to update the figures on the volcano's dimensions and elevations from those previously published (pre-MOLA). These changes will be entered as minor edits, but numbers will be changed. Schaffman (talk) 12:54, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Finished Article[edit]

I've largely finished the article except for general editing. Any comments are welcome. Schaffman (talk) 15:38, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
