First results of a geological-morphological analysis of radar pictures of the Venus surface obtained with the automatic interplanetary stations Venera 15 and Venera 16.
The paper reports the first results of a geological-morphological analysis of sidelooking-radar images of the Venus surface obtained by Venera 15 and 16 from November 11, 1983 through April 7, 1984. Photographs of the sections of the planet studied are presented. Among other findings, it is reported that exogenic processes on Venus are much less intense than on earth; in this respect Venus resembles the small planetary bodies (the moon, Mercury, and Mars).
