Details:
The Marius Hills in Oceanus Procellarum represent the lunar region in which domes are most abundant. In the Marius Hills, low domes can be found as well as steep-sided features with rough surfaces, resulting from superposed flow lobes and cones and, often, steep domes are superimposed on low domes. Marius Hills domes presumably consist of several superimposed volcanic constructs, originated during several effusive phases.
