In this study we investigate the relationship between the local elastic lithospheric thickness and the relative ages of coronae on Venus in an attempt to further understand corona and chasmata formation/evolution. We use Magellan gravity and topography data to estimate the elastic lithospheric thickness in the vicinity of coronae associated with chasmata. The relative timing of corona formation with respect to chasmata formation is classified using superposition relationships between fractures and flows a…
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.
