Mercury radar altimetry: A preliminary analysisRange-Doppler radar observations were made of the planet Mercury over the six year period 1978-1983. Approximately 30 continuous altitude profiles were obtained, each spanning between 20 and 90 degrees of longitude. The profiles are located in the equatorial zone of Mercury between 5 deg S and 12 deg N latitude. Approximately 40% of the total coverage is in the unimaged hemisphere.
