Areography


noun

The description of the physical features, such as the surface, atmosphere, etc., of the planet Mars.
[Collins English Dictionary]
----------------
Thus, it is not correct to say Martian geography, as Geo is the Greek prefix to Earth, while Ares is the Greek prefix to Mars. The same is valid to geology/areology, for example.
