Abstract Four distinct classes of lineaments can be described on the basis of Galileo's improved spectral and spatial coverage of Europa: (1) incipient cracks are narrow ( The morphologies, spectral properties, and orientations of the lineaments vary systematically with age, suggesting that these four classes represent different stages of development in an evolutionary sequence. Lineament formation appears to be the dominant resurfacing mechanism on Europa, and every landscape that has escaped… CONTINUE READING
