On Venus a 1000-km-long, 50-to 200-km-wide, anastomosing shear zone system (Thetis Boundary Shear Zone (TBSZ)) separates the eastern Ovda and northwestern Thetis Regiones. Previous workers mapped a part of this shear zone and interpreted it as a sinistral strike-slip shear zone containing an extensional jog. In the present study it is reexamined for a detailed structural and kinematic analysis, and an alternative kinematic interpretation is provided. The TBSZ is divided into western, central, and eastern …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
