Abstract: [1] Rolling lowlands comprise 80% of Venus's surface, and thus developing a geological understating of resurfacing and tectonism is critical for our understanding of Venus' evolution. In this paper, global, regional, and local approaches to interpreting Magellan synthetic aperture radar and altimetry radar data are used to constrain modes of lowland evolution, convection processes, and lithospheric structure. Detailed geologic mapping is combined with altimetry data test models of deformation belt evolution i…
