Despite the 2:1 relative size difference between Earth and Mars, the Martian volcano, Olympus Mons, still dwarfs Earth's Mauna Loa, Hawaii volcano. When measured from the ocean floor, Mauna Loa is 10km. high compared to Olympus Mons at 23km. This post-produced animation composite was created using various elements from animations #2865 through #2872.
Animation comparing the relative size differences between Mauna Loa and Olympus Mons volcanoes. 1x exaggeration. Note that the Earth's ocean beds are colorized to show depth below sea level. In this color scheme, greens and yellows are higher elevations; blues and purples are deeper levels.
