The distribution of volcanism in the Beta-Atla-Themis region of Venus: its relationship to rifting and implications for global tectonic regimes

Abstract:

A new analysis of the spatial relationships between volcanic features and rifts on Venus provides new constraints on models of planetary evolution. We developed a new database of volcanic features for the Beta-Atla-Themis (BAT) region, and used nearest neighbour measurements to determine relationships between different types of volcanic features and the rifts. Nearest neighbour analysis shows that all the dome-type and corona-type sub-populations tend to cluster. Rift associations were inferr...
