Structural evidence for reorientation of Miranda about a paleo-poleTwo structural arguments support the premise that Miranda has reoriented with respect to Uranus over its geologic history. Orientations of major extensional and compressional features are consistent with a major satellite reorientation similar to that previously suggested based on cratering asymmetry. Furthermore, structures within Elsinore Corona provide supporting evidence that this reorientation took place about a paleo-pole located near (-75 deg, 80 deg), suggesting a second minor reorientation of Miranda.
