We have analyzed the radar-dark parabola deposits associated with impact craters on the surface of Venus using the results of the Magellan radio experiments in both passive and active modes. The extent of mantle deposits is found to be much wider than the dark features observed in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. Using the emissivity data, we have classified features coinciding with the radar-dark parabolas into four types related to both differences in ejecta deposition styles for craters of differ…
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.
