Article history: The Deep Impact mission discovered repetitive outbursts on Comet 9P/Tempel 1 and the presence of several smooth terrains on its surface. We present new measurements of the extent of the smooth terrains, the slopes along their centerlines, and the areas of their likely source regions. Our analysis of these features indicates that they are 0.3 m in size should become fully relaxed during the emplacement time explaining the smooth texture seen in the images. In contrast, the… CONTINUE READING
