Pavri, B. and Head, J. W. and Klose, K. B. and Wilson, L. (1992) Steep-sided domes on Venus: characteristics, geologic setting, and eruption conditions from Magellan data. Journal of Geophysical Research, 97 (E8). pp. 13445-13478.Full text not available from this repository.
A survey of more than 95 percent of the Venus surface reveals 145 steep-sided domes which can be subdivided into a variety of morphologic forms, the most common being shaped like inverted bowls or flat-topped domes. Results of a preliminary analysis of the distribution and geologic setting of the domes are presented. The relation of the domes to analogous terrestrial features is examined, and possible models for their mode of emplacement are outlined.
