Description:
On this map it's clearly visible how the greened part of Mars makes a brave but futile effort to conquer the southern hemisphere. Medusa is quite a lush area but Memnonia is already a transition zone towards the steppe of Anarres and the desert of Sirenum. Some isolated craters, the biggest of them being Columbus and Newton ,have oases within their walls. The name of the city of Unternullgrad indicates that winters on the southern hemisphere are much colder than in the north, due to Mars' asymetrical orbit (during the southern winter the planet is much further away from the sun). In Summer however the temperatures rise far above zero...

In the east is the Tharsis bulge, the roof of the world at some nine kilometers above sea level; this area is not accessible without breathing gear, but it's a must for anybody who wants to get a glimpse of the prehuman Mars.
