  • Venus surface has been studied extensively using SAR (synthetic aperture radar) –imagery provided by the NASA Magellan mission in 1990 1994. The radar images with ~98% coverage and resolution of ~100 m may be used in order to understand the global suite of surface structures, and to analyze single features and their formation processes using photogeological approaches and methods. This study recognizes and catalogues four Venusian surface structure types, the coronae, arachnoids, novae and… CONTINUE READING
