Topographic models of Neptune's small inner satellites Larissa and Proteus were derived from the shapes of limbs and terminators in Voyager images, modified locally to accomodate large craters and ridges. The models are presented here in tabular and graphic form, including the first map of Larissa and the first detailed relief map of Proteus. The shape of Larissa is approximated by a triaxial ellipsoid with axes of 208, 192 and 178 km, but is only weakly constrained by the single available view… 
Topography and geology of Hyperion
I have mapped the Saturnian satellite Hyperion using Voyager 2 images obtained in 1981 and a shape model derived from the results of Thomas et al. (1995). The results are presented in tabular and
Asteroid Geology from Galileo and NEAR Shoemaker Data
The four asteroids visited by spacecraft, Gaspra, Ida, Mathilde, and Eros, have shapes and surface morphologies dominated by the effects of impact cratering. The presence of impactderived regolith
Triaxiality of satellites and small bodies in the Solar System
The triaxial figures are very common shape of most of planetary satellites as well as of smaell bodies as asteroids. There are 21 satellites in the Solar System triaxial figures of which were
Solar System Physics for Exoplanet Research
Over the past three decades, we have witnessed one of the great revolutions in our understanding of the cosmos - the dawn of the Exoplanet Era. Where once we knew of just one planetary system (the
MAPPING WORLDS WITH IRREGULAR SHAPES
Near-spherical worlds may be mapped using conventional techniques, but many solar system objects with diameters less than 500 km have very irregular shapes and pose special problems for
