Rahway Valles is a valley in the Elysium quadrangle of Mars, located at 9.4° North and 186.2° West. It is 500 km long and was named after a river in New Jersey, USA. The Elysium quadrangle is one of a series of 30 quadrangle maps of Mars used by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Astrogeology Research Program. The Elysium quadrangle is also referred to as MC-15 (Mars Chart-15).The Elysium quadrangle covers the area 180° to 225° west longitude and 0° to 30° north latitude on Mars.The Elysium quadrangle contains the volcanoes Elysium Mons and Albor Tholus. Much of this area is covered with lava flows, some can even be shown approaching, then stopping upon reaching higher ground. (See pictures below for examples) Sometimes when lava flows the top cools quickly into a solid crust. However, the lava below often still flows, this action breaks up the top layer making it very rough.
