Some deformation trends and topographic characteristics of tesserae on VenusMapping of dominant trends of deformation and topographic analysis of tesserae reveal that (1) consistant patterns of deformation exist between individual tesserae; (2) regional deformation associated with coronae and rifts commonly overprints tesserae fabrics; (3) normalized area frequency plots of tesserae display a strongly bimodal distribution between -70 to 70 degrees latitude; and (4) the relief at tessera margins is relatively constant and independent of tessera elevation. We are continuing to expand these observations and test their implications for the formation of tesserae and for global models of deformation on Venus.
