A new radar image of Venus covering the latitude range 46� to 75� and the approximate longitude range 290� to 10� is shown. The resolution is approximately 20 kilometers. 

Venus: Further Evidence of Impact Cratering and Tectonic Activity from Radar Observations

Earth-based radar images at a resolution of 10 kilometers show a diverse surface terrain on Venus, probably produced by both impact events and tectonic activity. Only a small number of craters of

Reports: venus: identification of banded terrain in the mountains of ishtar terra.

High resolution images obtained with the Arecibo radar system reveal numerous parallel 10- to 20-kilometer-wide bands of high radar backscatter situated on and oriented parallel to the major mountain ranges of the Ishtar Terra region of Venus.

Venus: Preliminary Topographic and Surface Imaging Results from the Pioneer Orbiter

A first radar-scattering image, compiled from data obtained by the Pioneer Venus radar mapper in its imaging mode, shows a region north of the equator; several circular depressions seen in this area may result from meteoritic impact.

Pioneer Venus Radar results altimetry and surface properties

The radar altimeter carried aboard the Pioneer Venus orbiter spacecraft has yielded a topographic map covering 93% of the Venus globe, with a linear surface resolution of better than 150 km. Vertical

Pioneer Venus Radar results: Geology from images and altimetry

Altimetry and radar image data obtained by the Pioneer Venus spacecraft and earth-based radars have provided a first look at the global distribution of topographic relief, regional morphology, and

Geologic interpretation of new observations of the surface of Venus

New radar observations of the surface of Venus provide further evidence of a diverse and complex geologic evolution. The radar bright feature "Beta" (24°N, 85°W) is seen to be a 700 km diameter

Gravity Field of Venus: A Preliminary Analysis

The long-wavelength anomalies seen in the Venus gravity data have been Fourier-decomposed along the orbital tracks and compared to analogous spectra for Earth, suggesting differences in dynamic processes or lithospheric behavior, or both, for the two planets.



Radar Interferometric Observations of Venus at 70-Centimeter Wavelength

A radar interferometer was used to map unambiguously the surface reflectivity of Venus in the polarized mode at a wavelength of 70 centimeters and agrees well in most respects with earlier maps made elsewhere at shorter wavelengths.

Venus: Mapping the Surface Reflectivity by Radar Interferometry

The surface reflectivity of Venus obtained by radar interferometry at a wavelength of 3.8 centimeters has been mapped for a region extending approximately from -80� to 0� in longitude (Carpenter's

Some Preliminary Results of the 70‐cm Radar Studies of Venus

Delay-Doppler positions of three radar features are given for observations made during the 1964, 1967, and 1969 inferior conjunctions of Venus. The latitude and longitude of each feature were
