Venus Geologic Mappers' Handbook USGS OFR 4 INTRODUCTION Radar images and other data acquired by the Magellan spacecraft make an exciting new venture possible: the geologic mapping of the planet Venus. Such mapping will form a basis for determining the planet's geologic history and understanding its geologic processes. Part or all of this report is presented in Portable Document Format (PDF). For best results viewing and printing PDF documents, it is recommended that you download the documents to your computer and open them with Adobe Reader.

The specific requirements or preferences of your reviewing publisher, classroom teacher, institution or organization should be applied. planetary geologic mapping has been evolving rapidly to embrace the use of new data and modern technology and to accommodate the growing needs of planetary exploration. Planetary geologic maps have been published by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) since (Hackman, ). Over this time, numerous maps of several planetary bodies have been.

The mapping of Venus refers to the process and results of human description of the geological features of the planet involves surface radar images of Venus, construction of geological maps, and the identification of stratigraphic units, volumes of rock with a similar age.. Satellite radar provides imagery of the surface morphology by using the physical properties of wave reflection. this handbook, which will be updated periodically as an appendix to the annual abstracts of the Planetary Geologic Mappers’ (PGM) meeting (downloadable at the. PGM web page; see below for a complete list of web links). Other updates, including recently published maps, will be posted on the USGS Astrogeology Science Center’s (ASC) PGM web page. The Planetary Geologic Mappers Annual Meeting will be held June 12–14, , at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Purpose and Scope The annual Planetary Geologic Mappers meetings are held to allow geologic mappers of funded NASA geological mapping projects or other mapping projects to present the status of mapping efforts and obtain. The Astrogeology Team at USGS provides coordination of NASA's planetary geologic mapping vanbuskirkphotos.comic mapping investigations of any imaged planetary body (except Earth) are proposed to NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics Program on an annual basis (generally due sometime between late April and early June) and then reviewed by the Lunar and Planetary Geoscience Review .

Venus is a planet with striking all the other planets in the Solar System, it is the one nearest to Earth and most like it in terms of mass, but has no magnetic field or recognizable plate tectonic system. Much of the ground surface is exposed volcanic bedrock, some with thin and patchy layers of soil covering, in marked contrast with Earth, the Moon, and Mars. Current Mapping Guidelines Guidelines in the form of handbooks, tutorials, manuscripts, and templates have been developed and periodically updated and modernized by the USGS, in tandem with NASA programs and research scientists.

Endogenic processes in geology are a function of a body’s internal geodynamic comprise volcanic, tectonic, and isostatic processes, which shaped the surfaces of all terrestrial.
