Areomorphology, or geomorphology of Mars, is the study of physical surface features on Mars.

The scientific study of the origin and evolution of topographic features on Mars created by physical, chemical, or potential biological processes operating at or near the planet's surface.


The Greek root of the term is Ares, the greek name for the god of war. Morphḗ means "form" and λόγος, lógos, means "study."
