Abstract: [1] We have produced a high-resolution global admittance map of Venus using a spatiospectral localization technique, calculating 64,800 admittance spectra evenly spaced in latitude and longitude. We grouped the admittance spectra into 35 classes that we inverted for elastic, crustal, and lithospheric thickness using bottom-loading, top-loading, and short-wavelength top-loading models with long-wavelength bottom-loading (''hot spot'') models. Our best fit models identify 17 classes consistent with top loading …
