"In the first book on the geology of Venus to incorporate findings from the Magellan spacecraft's four-year mapping mission, Peter Cattermole introduces the reader to the strange world of Venusian landscapes - some reassuringly familiar, others spectacularly non-Earthlike, and all produced by geological processes of intriguing differences and parallels to those of Earth. Cattermole presents the latest research on Venusian plate tectonics, volcanoes, hot spots, cold spots, mountain belts, fracture zones, winds, erosion, craters, and lithosphere structure." "With nearly 150 detailed maps and dramatic, high-resolution images, some in full color, Venus: The Geological Story presents state-of-the-art information in a stunning visual format. While many of the topics regarding Venusian geography remain controversial, Cattermole offers an unbiased presentation that makes clear which recent data may be subject to reinterpretation in the future. This is the definitive book on a subject of interest to scientist and nonscientist alike."--BOOK JACKET
