Testing Models for the Formation of the Equatorial Ridge on Saturn's Moon Iapetus via Crater Counting
Iapetus's equatorial ridge, visible in global views of the moon, is unique in the Solar System. The formation of this feature is likely attributed to a key event in the evolution of Iapetus, and various models have been ...
Long-wavelength topography on Mercury is not from folding of the lithosphere
Previous work suggested that the lithosphere of Mercury could undergo folding in response to global contraction, and indeed observations from the MESSENGER mission revealed several regions where long-wavelength topography ...
