To the north of Arago lie two known lunar domes Arago α (termed A2) and Arago β (termed A3). These two large domes A2 and A3 belong to class D and formed during several stages of effusion, representing non-monogetic domes. The other smaller domes in Arago and Carrel show lower flank slopes (between 0.5°-0.9°). According to their rheologic properties, these low domes (A1, A4-A7 and Ca1) belong to class A implying low lava viscosities of about 103 Pa s, high effusion rates and very short durations of the effusion process of about 2–4 months.
