The tessera terrain on Venus, comprised of areas of high radar backscatter, complex deformation patterns relative to other units, and topography standing higher than surrounding plains, covers -35.33 x 106 km 2, about 8% of the surface of Venus, and is nonrandomly distributed, being preferentially located at equatorial and higher northern latitudes with a distinct paucity below about 30øS. Individual tessera occurrences range in area from the lower limits of our measurements (about 200 km 2) up… CONTINUE READING
