Convergence within the Wedges Region, Europa

Elyse Schinella, Craig O'Neill

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


    Extensional areas have been identified within the Wedges region on Europa. In order to conserve the surface area budget, a mechanism of crustal destruction, such as convergence, must have operated in the past. The purpose of this study was to identify possible convergence zones and to determine when they were active in the past.
