Description:
There's a large variety of landscapes in this part of Mars. Dense forests cover the northwestern area, where the proximity of Viking Bay and the Icecold Ocean can be felt. Here we also find the longest river on Mars, the Alvin (rivers on Mars are named after the first children born in the early settlements) Further east the forests gradually change into the grass plains of Arabia. The Deuteronilus Mountains in the north seperate Xanthe Desert from the Ocean. In the south The Oven is the hottest place on the planet, making it hard to believe Mars is so much further from the sun than Earth!
